December 5th is soil day!
Soil day corresponds with the birthday of Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand. This date was proposed by FAO to honour him for his efforts in the promotion of soil science and soil resources conservation and sustainable management.
In an increasing number of countries across the world this day is celebrated each year with a wide ranging of activities and festivities. Are you one of the more than 60,000 soil scientists celebrating Soil Day? If so, send your photo and it will be posted at the blog.
