It all begins and ends with Soil. She Provides. She Nurtures.
Whether you want to learn about Gardening, Farming, Philosophy, Spirituality or Psychology – soil is the best place to start with. You understand her and she will understand you. You take care of her and she will nourish you. You love her and you are loved forever.
Talking from an agricultural point of view- we start with studying different types of soils, their basic traits and nutritional composition.
Soil is made up of billions and billions of micro-organisms, insects and worms. It is very important that we acknowledge and appreciate their existence. They are very crucial for ‘our’ existence. Yes, you read it right. OUR existence.
Soil, in the absence of these microbes is called a dead Soil. Whereas a soil that is abundant with these microbes, insects and worms is called a living soil.
So here are four main things that we need to study in detail when it comes to soil –
- Properties of different types of soil.
- Soil nutrients and ways of supplying nutrients i.e. Chemical and Natural.
- Composting and Mulching – Its impact on soil.
- Soil revival.
