Thank you to everyone who responded to the call in Feb-March 2015 (and since) for photos and descriptions of their soils to share and raise awareness of the diversity, values and issues of soils from the Wimmera – Mallee, Australia and anywhere in the world to create this volunteer free on-line educational soil resource.
Thankyou to the IASS and Global Soil Week whose interest in this project brought it to Berlin for GSW and to the GSW people I met there and elsewehere on-line in the world, who together inspired me to keep going with this and get so many of the photos and notes onto this website as the Soil Selfies Collection.
Soils is now a UN Decade, so I will keep growing this collection so long as contributions keep coming in (Instructions are on the Soil Selfies intro page), but I also need help to publicise it. There is much to be appreciated and learnt about our world through these wonderful and inspiring Soil Selfies. Thank you.
