Students will find Know Soil, Know Life is an easily accessible resource. But Know Soil, Know Life is for all ages. Everyone interested in being more environmentally conscious – the urban dweller, the young naturalist, the home gardener – can learn about the diversity of soils and their importance in our environment.
