Soil is a living ecosystem that includes minerals, air, water, habitat for creatures and the creatures themselves. Soil provides plants with nutrients, water, physical support and air for roots. Soil also houses macro- and microorganisms, which are nature’s prime recyclers. On a wider scale, soil plays a vital role in the global carbon cycle. Learn how to care for the soil you steward with this set of worksheets and guide, part of the Land Steward Rural Resource Guidelines series. One of nine rural resource guidelines to help people living on rural land assess their land and resources, create goals and develop a stewardship plan. The Land Steward Rural Resource Guideline Series publications can be used individually as standalone resources, together to create a Do-It-Yourself stewardship plan, or as part of the Land Steward Curriculum.
