“The soil is the great connector of our lives, the source and destination of all." -Wendell Berry
Today we got our hands in the dirt and learned about soil. We looked at the different components of soil, the creates that help make soil, and the reasons plants need soil. Of course the kids were most interested in the things that make soil, The rolly pollies as usual stole the show. We played some games and used magnifying glasses to explore the soil. We looked at the separate components and the full conglomeration of soil, and I think the kids got a good introduction to the world of soil. Soil is one of my favorite things to look at and study, it is a living system, and i'm glad I could share a bit of that world with these kids.
