Year of the Soil

international year of soil - getting our hands dirty

The UN deemed 2015 the year of the soil. Soil is our unsung hero and is essential for global food security and fresh water storage. GMO Inside is celebrating soil by sharing a series of short videos, produced by the USDA, that document the importance of healthy soil and industrial agriculture’s role in depleting its nutrients. These videos enliven the connections between industries, farmers, soils, and the produce on our plate. They will hopefully empower you to join the movement calling for healthy soil worldwide and get your hands dirty protecting soil in your community.
