Soil is alive! Soil is made of life and soil makes life. Soil is truly the foundation of life for us all! The soil ecosystem is filled with amazing, incredible living organisms of all shapes, colors, and sizes. Fun fact: There are 7 billion living creatures in a single shovel of soil – that’s the same amount of living creatures as there are people on all of planet earth!
Our latest music video “Interesting Things Underground,” produced as a Water Rocks! internship project by student intern Megan Koppenhafer, celebrates the astounding diversity of living things found right beneath our feet!
