Why Save Soil?
Save Soil is a global movement launched by Sadhguru, to address the soil crisis by bringing together people from around the world to stand up for Soil Health, and supporting leaders of all nations to institute national policies and actions toward increasing the organic content in cultivable Soil.
In 20 years, 40% less food is expected to be produced for 9.3 billion people. Poor soil leads to poor nutritional value. Today's fruits and vegetables already contain 90% fewer nutrients. 2 billion people suffer from nutritional deficiencies leading to multitude of diseases.
Depleted soils cannot absorb and regulate water flows. Lack of water retention leads to water scarcity, droughts & floods. Organic matter can hold up to 90% of its weight in water and release it slowly over time. This is a big help in drought-prone areas.
The fragrance of the soil Somehow is more tenderness to me than the fancy fragrance of the flower
The strength and sensitivity of life held in the soil lets off waves of passion of a different sort.
Passion not of a person but of my species that has gone insensitive to all that nurtures it and absorbs it at its end.
As I walk barefoot, I break down with Passions so profound that it defies all descriptions.
Oh' Soil, My life
POEM BY SADHGURU
The above information is enough for us to conclude that our earth is depreciating in the terms of soil. The soil fertility and quantity is being lost day by day if not acted upon now, it may take decades, if not centuries, to bring its fertility back. If we start saving the soil today, only in a matter of few years, this phenomena could be easily reversed, but it is upon us how we wish it to be reversed.
