Abstract

Soil is essential for life on earth. It is the earth’s living skin we all rely on, but take for granted. One quarter of all known species live within soil. Just one teaspoon can hold more organisms than there are people on the planet. Soils hold more carbon than our atmosphere and vegetation combined. As Lady Eve Balfour, founder of the Soil Association said: ‘The health of soil, plant, animal and man is one and indivisible’.
