Did you know 2015 is International Year of Soils?

Just a short quote from Indian environmental activist Vandana Shiva W : "The joint crises of climate change and biodiversity erosion can both be addressed by planting gardens everywhere—full of biodiversity; full of the celebration of life, well-being, and abundance. Gardens of hope everywhere. Farms that give real food. We will continue to create the other world that we are sowing—seed by seed, inch-by-inch of soil, person by person, community by community—until all of this planet is embraced in one circle of a resurgent life and resurgent love. We will not give up." Vandana Shiva, commondreams.org / wikipedia
