Did You Know That:
  • Almost all the food you eat, material for the clothes you wear, and wood for the house you live in is produced by soil?
  • There are thousands of different types of soil across the world? The USA alone has more than 70,000 varieties of soil.
  • It takes 500 years to produce an inch of topsoil, which is the most productive layer of soil?
  • About 70% of the weight of a text book or magazine is soil?
  • Soil is alive? There are more microorganisms in a handful of soil than there are people on Earth.
  • Almost all the antibiotics we take to help us fight infections and disease were obtained from soil microorganisms?
  • Some animals, like chimpanzees in Uganda eat soil? This lets them absorb nutrients in harmful foods.
  • Soil is a non-renewable natural resource? This should make us think of how much we value it.
