World Soil Day is celebrated every year on December 5 at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) headquarters in Rome, the regional offices and through national and local events. This year 2017, World Soil Day is celebrated in the theme of ‘Caring for the Planet starts from the Ground’ as Soil is the upper layer of Earth in which plants grow.

So whatever we do against nature today will create a big disaster in future. Hence we celebrate the mother nature with the natural resources and develop and maintain it rather than destroying it.
