Public support sought for soil health stamp

The Indiana State Department of Agriculture is seeking public support in asking the U.S. Postal Service to issue a soil health forever stamp.

According to the Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee, stamp proposals must meet certain criteria and will be considered based on their significance to American history, culture or the environment.

“Our future depends on the condition of the soil, so whether it’s directly or indirectly, this issue really impacts everybody,” said Meg Leader, ISDA director of soil health and organizer of the effort.
