Soil is vital for us Earth-dwellers. It provides us with nourishment and shelter, preserves history and imparts water and nutrients.
        One fifth of Iceland is covered in black sand, on which almost nothing grows. Although the sandy deserts bring us their unique natural beauty, the sand has little else to offer.
        When Lyme grass establishes itself in black sand it initiates the soil-building process. We can help it along with a handful of seeds. Let’s start building bridges between black sand and extended vegetation by sowing Lyme grass.
