The International Year of Soil is no dirty joke
from GOOD Magazine
Outside of farming and gardening circles, soil gets very little love. People don't really seem to want it in the house or on their shoes; you very rarely hear someone say, "Man, I could really go for a good bucket of soil right now." Often, you'll see someone stop and comment on the beauty of a majestic oak or beautiful flower without even registering the earthy, hardworking mass of minerals, decomposing matter and tiny organisms that made it all possible. But soil (or "dirt," as it's known in less couth contingents), is essential to about 95 percent of the world's food supply — for humans it's a pretty necessary part of not being dead.
