Franklin D. Roosevelt on a Nation’s Soils
The Dust Bowl of the 1930s led President Franklin D. Roosevelt to establish the Soil Erosion Service. David B. Woolner, of the Roosevelt Institute, says it marked “the first major federal commitment to the preservation of natural resources in private hands.”
Today, the importance of soil conservation is recognized world-wide. 2015 was declared the International Year of Soils.
“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
In one accord: “Go Green!”
