Soils grow food for families (family farming)
Soils are at the base of natural environments, native habitat and biodiversity
Calalloo Creek, Outback NSW, sand forms an intermittent stream channel. When it runs , the sands are moved, but also are permeable and water infiltrates deep below and supports large River Red Gum Trees which in turn help to hold the sand in place.
Mt Poole, Outback NSW has shallow rocky soils derived from silcrete and mudstone which grow native plants on an outback sheep station. Efforts now being made to conserve a rare indigenous plant will also help retain the soil.
Instructions for contributing your soil to this collection are on the main Soil Selfies page
