International Year of Soils
Did you know that 2015 is the International Year of Soils?
Food for Life Scotland is a programme of the Soil Association, so soils are at the heart of everything we do! It's SO much more than just 'dirt' - did you know that 95% of our food comes originally from the soil?
Watch this space throughout the year for more information, resources and events all about soils, and if you're planning an event around soils, or need more information, please get in touch.
In the meantime, check out the resources about soils on the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN website – including a fabulous info-graphic with loads of interesting facts about soil! http://www.fao.org/soils-portal/en/
