World Soil Day - December 5th 2014

World Soil Day on December 5th celebrates the importance of soil

'The soil is the great connector of our lives, the source and destination of all'  Wendell Berry,

From soil we come, to soil we return and soil, the living crust of planet Earth, feeds our bodies via plants and animals as we journey through life.

For much of human history the inseparable bond between people and soil was commonly understood but as we have moved away from a rural way of living we have become physically, socially and spiritually removed from the soil, but we are inextricably linked to the soil and a lack of connection leaves us deeply impoverished. 

So feel the soil in your hands and remember that to be human is to be 'of the soil'
