It's National Soil Conservation Week
 
The Soil Conservation Council of Canada wants you to think about soil health this week as part of it's annual awareness campaign.
 
The organization, which was started in the late 80's, is busy promoting National Soil Conservation Week.
 
Executive Director Jim Tokarchuck says there are many benefits to maintaining a healthy soil, in addition to providing a consistent supply of food.
 
"It removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, it helps to create situations where water is cleaned through filtration, through healthy soils," he commented. "It provides wildlife habitat, recreational habitat, and just that beautiful panoramic scenery you see on the Prairies."
