Soil is often overlooked but is a critical component of our ecosystem. It serves as the foundation for all terrestrial life, providing a habitat for plants and organisms, and acts as a vital filter for water. Healthy soils are the backbone of successful agriculture, playing a crucial role in water retention, nutrient cycling, and carbon sequestration. By understanding the significance of soil, students can appreciate its role in protecting our environment.
