Soil, What Makes the World Go Round


Soil is one of the most important things on Earth that supports life. And before giving examples of how conventional farming has destroyed our soil and the detrimental consequences, I’ll explain what it is.

Soil is composed of:

  • Minerals (sand, silt, clay, rocks, pebbles)
  • Organic matter (decomposed plant & animal materials, cells & tissues from soil microbes)
  • Micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, arthropods)
  • Water
  • Air


What does a plant need in order to thrive? Elements found in the MINERALS you see in dirt (sand, silt, clay, rocks, pebbles)
