The 68th General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils. (IYS)

According to the UN soil is "humanity's silent ally."

Here is one more resource from the Food and Agricultural Organization.

There is a citizen science soils program about which you may learn more here.

The IYS kicked off in December 2014 so I'm more than a little late! My hope is that you know about it already.
