2022 Conservation Poster Contest Theme
Healthy soils are the foundation for all life on Earth. It is imperative in food production. Healthy soils give us clean water and air. Soil is an important resource for everything from human health to agriculture to water filtration. Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use in our daily life, such as food, clothing, clean water, homes and more. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which equals a healthy you. It is important that each of us recognize where our food comes from and the farmers and ranchers who are dedicated to using responsible land management practices to ensure a sustainable food supply and healthy land and soil for future generations.
