We are dedicating spring 2021 to protecting soil

All animal species, including humans, depend on soil

Soil is a living organism, the skin of the Earth.

It is home to almost a quarter of all organisms on the planet, from bacteria to moles. Soil characteristics affect the water cycle and the amount of nutrients there are for plants. If soil suffers, life on Earth suffers. Pesticides and chemicals used in industrial agriculture put the health of soil at risk.

Discover the story of soil as an exhibition in the Green Pea spaces and on our social media.
