What is this?

Good soil is the foundation of earth-based spiritual practices. It is a living, breathing entity that nourishes plants and provides a key part of the essential life cycle. Good soil contains a balance of essential nutrients, air, water, dirt, and a diversity of microorganisms that feed and protect plants. It is resilient, able to absorb impacts and cycles of drought or flooding, and is regenerative, restoring its fertility over time through composting and regenerative agriculture practices. Good soil is a reminder of the interconnectedness of all life, and can be a source of connection and healing through spiritual ceremonies and rituals.
