Can we keep the soil from washing and
Yep is right.
And there's soil saving going on right
now. People are using plants and grass to hold the soil down.
Farmers have ways underway to keep their soil on the land so they
can keep on growing food for us. One way is with windbreaks, rows of
trees that are planted beside fields to keep the soil from blowing
away. The next time you're out in the country, take a look at the
farmland and see all of the ways farmers keep their soil at home.
