Soil: The incredible story of what keeps the earth, and us, healthy
Amidst the bustle of our world’s attention-grabbing issues, there exists an unsung hero silently nurturing life beneath our feet — soil.
As we mark World Soil Day on 5 December, it is a fitting moment to ponder the profound significance of healthy soil in sustaining life.
Yet soil often remains an unattractive subject, and is overlooked in a world fixated on images and branding. Matthew Evans’ compelling book, Soil: The incredible story of what keeps the earth, and us, healthy (Soil) sings the praise of topsoil, and is an urgent and passionate call to think about soil differently.
Driven by his passion for gastronomy, Matthew Evans embarked on a quest to uncover the origins of flavourful meals. His journey led him to become a farmer, experimenting with the relationship between soil, nutrition, and taste.
He strongly believes that the heart of sustainable and ethical food production lies beneath our feet. In his book Soil, Evans takes us on a journey that borders on the magical, but is firmly rooted in evidence.
