Soil threats and RECARE discussed on BBC local radio
A partner in RECARE, Jane Mills, from University of Gloucestershire in UK, was interviewed by BBC Radio Gloucestershire about the importance of soil and how it is often forgotten and undervalued as a global resource. The interview was broadcast on 1st January 2017 and can be listened on the BBC website until 31st January. The interview starts at 1 hour 11 minutes into the programme. World Soil Day was celebrated on 5th December and Jane explained to listeners why soil warrants its own global awareness day and how our soil has been affected by intensive agricultural land management, expansion of cities and road building, climate change and heavy farm machinery. She spoke about how good farming practices can help protect our soil and described how RECARE is looking for practical solutions to these soil threats.
