SAM E. SOIL
Sam E. Soil and MSWCC Field Rep. "Farmer" Lee Smith speak to Head Start students at Tishomingo Co. Fair.
Mississippi Soil and Water Conservation Commission's (MSWCC) Sam E. Soil is a walking soil sample that teaches students the importance of soil and conservation.
He displays grass, vegetables and fruits that grow above-ground on his top-soil "head," with root vegetables and roots visible underneath his top-soil layer.
Sam E. Soil is an early way to teach young conservationists the importance of conserving, protecting and nourishing our soil; lessons they can take to their own back yards, to gardens, farms and everywhere.
