World Soil Day 2014

It certainly seems like there is a day for everything. In case you wondered, today is National Cotton Candy Day, Tuesday is National Pastry Day, and Dec. 21, is National Flashlight Day. One day you may have missed this past Friday was World Soil Day, a day to highlight the importance of soils in our lives.

Many, especially children, have compiled wish lists of what they want under the Christmas tree. Today, seems an appropriate time to generate a Christmas wish list for those producing our food, fiber, and fuel.
