What are the reasons that soil is so important to protect?

    Organic Matter (decaying or decayed living things) and minerals (broken down rock) are what makes up soil particles. Soil that contains a partly decayed organic matter is called humus. Soil is a natural resource, like water and minerals. Healthy soil is critical in natural ecosystems and sustains our need to grow plants for food and fibre. Soil gives plants a place to sink their roots and anchor themselves. Soil is also a community with billions of organisms.
