What is conservation?
Soil Feeds America
Life on Earth
Where do we come in?
Conservation is how we protect natural resources like plants, animals, and land from being harmed. We conserve by using important resources carefully and preventing damage so that they can continue to exist for future generations.
Two of the most important resources to protect on earth are soil and water because of how necessary they are to be able to grow food. Without the ability to grow plants, we would also lose many everyday materials such as corn starch, which would impact the production of medicine, diapers, envelopes, alcohol, oil, and gasoline.
Without agriculture, America would not be able to supply food to grocery stores.
Soil health and water quality not only determine the quality of human life, but whether life on earth is possible.
All plants and animals rely on healthy soil and water to support their habitat, including humans.
The conservation, restoration, and protection of our soil and water resources benefits everyone and requires community-wide involvement.
