December 5, 2020 is World Soil Day!
This year’s theme ‘keep soil alive, protect soil biodiversity’ aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining healthy ecosystems and human-well being’ by encouraging people to engage in proactively improving soil health to fight soil biodiversity loss.
A good way to start getting involved is to broaden your understanding of soil ecology. A great resource we recently came across is the new Podcast ‘In Search of Soil’ hosted by Diego Footer. There are 8 great episodes so far to check out but if you are particularly interested in Fungi, Peter McCoy from Radical Mycology discusses soil fungi and their critical roles in sustaining life on land in Episode 7.
