HAPPY WORLD SOIL DAY!!
Each year the 5th of December is a day worth celebrating; not just for soil scientists and fanatics alike, but for anyone living on this planet. It is a day to celebrate and reflect on how valuable soils are to our very existance. From the growing of our food and fibre, cleaning our water, and protecting biodiversity to provding construction materials; soils are are super important resource to us all. But they are under threath from contaminates, degredation, erosion and urbanistation.
It is important that we all consider how we utilse and protect the soil we have; and World Soil Day is the perfect day to raise awareness about soils… and eat cake! World Soil Day was celebrated by soil staff and students at UNE with a morning tea with a grand array of baked goodies.
