Thanks for visiting “Soils Matter, Get the Scoop!”, published by the Soil Science Society of America (SSSA).
SSSA is the premier organization devoted to soil science. Our goal for “Soils Matter, Get the Scoop!” is to help preserve soil – a valuable natural resource – by educating the public about sustainable practices.
Soils play a role in every part of our lives: the food we eat, the water we drink, the clothes we wear…even the beds we sleep in! Without soil we could not grow forests or food, or build houses. Soils even help clean the air we breathe.
Whether you are interested in soil science in general or have a specific question about your home garden, our blog will have something to interest you. Send us your questions, either by posting to the blog or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SSSA has more soils-related information for the general public on our main website, http://www.soils.org under the Discover Soils tab (www.soils.org/discover-soils). Here, we have topics like Soil Basics, Soils in the City, Food, Climate, etc. We encourage you to explore all you can about soils – because Soils Sustain Life!
