Erosion ControlHow to grow food when the soil is washed away?
Humans need food - most food needs soil to grow
Erosion reduces soil, endangers our food supply
Erosion costs us a lot of money!
Imagine how much we pay for
United Nations food agency has warned that erosion could cause violent price spikes!
There are many different kinds of erosion:
Erosion through water
Erosion through gravity
Erosion by impact of raindrops
Coastal erosion/ beach erosion
Why do we care about erosion?
Erosion endangers all life on Earth!Erosion can change earthquake patterns
Erosion can change human food supply
Erosion can change weather patterns
Erosion can change Earth's climate and
Earth's climate is changing erosion patterns
Erosion builds new caves, destroys others
Beach erosion can eliminate whole countries
This was the look of our property, when we bought it - no mulch - high erosion - no soil.|
One solution for fighting erosion and bringing back top soil is Mulching.
Why is erosion control important?
Protecting of over-heating
At the BSB Nature Preserves in the Texas Hill County we bought a road constructed by our County.
This was the look of the road, when we bought it - no mulch - high erosion - dangerous to drive on...
This was the look of the former county road 2 years later - mulched - low erosion - Nature partly restored
Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation volunteers are using mulch to protect Nature - YOU can do that too!
