Believe me, once you take a look at this video, you will never look at soil the same way again! Dr.Patricia Q. Richardson from the University of Texas has produced this fascinating video, Soil Critters – Life in the Great Underneath. Pat’s know as the dung beetle lady and her mantra is Poop is Beautiful! The video “creepy crawly” look at the beneficial critters living in healthy soil.
We’ve published this video in support of the UN’s International Year of Soils. And of course Holistic Management is a great way to build and maintain healthy soils.

Thank you for posting this! I’m so grateful to Dr Pat Richardson for first introducing me, many years ago, to these soil critters and their critical role in healthy land. How we manage our above ground livestock greatly affects these below ground ‘livestock’, and the more we understand how they benefit us, and how we can encourage healthy populations of them, the better! Even though this video is old, technologically speaking, it’s value is priceless to me. Pat’s fascination and appreciation of soil life is inspiring and contagious! A must see, in my opinion!.
