Soil justice is as simple as changing how you think about soil.
Take a moment to think about how much life exists in soil. Scientists have found between 50 million and 4 billion microorganisms in a single teaspoon of soil.
When you begin to think of soil as the living entity it is—life that needs to eat, breathe and interact with other life like us—you begin to experience what we know as soil justice.
Soil justice can be about action, too.
- Talk about the importance of soil with your friends, neighbors and families.
- Incorporate best practices for sustainable soil in your hobby garden or large production farms.
- Ask questions of your local growers, farmers, industrial plants, and nurseries about how they practice soil sustainability.
- Talk to your politician about new construction or development in your city or township.
