I am afraid to say we did not have a sufficient number of people register for our meeting at the Allerton Project this year and so we have had to cancel the event on 22nd April (2015). Hopefully we will be able to organise another event next year. I'd be keen to find out why people could not manage to make it this year, so please let me know if you have a chance - maybe the date was not ideal for some? Best wishes, Barry
Dear All MSDG and BSSS members,
If you are planning (or even considering) attending our annual MSDG meeting this year, please can you register TODAY! You need to do so through the BSSS website using this link - http://www.soils.org.uk/event/434
Soapbox Science is an annual public science communication event that transforms public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. The event follows the format of London Hyde Park’s Speaker’s Corner, which is historically an arena for public debate. With Soapbox Science, we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, heckle, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of our leading scientists.
Dear All MSDG list subscribers
Happy New Year!
Dear MSDG members / readers of this group
The Society has been invited to be a Special Exhibitor at the RHS London Plant and Potato Fair at Vincent Square, London on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st February 2015.
The 2015 Early Career researchers’ (ECR) conference will be held at the University of York on the 7th and 8th of April.
Running since 1986, this conference brings together vibrant PhD students in the area of soil science.
An important aim of the ECR conference is to provide a platform for early career researchers to present their work and network with their peers and colleagues. This conference is, therefore, an excellent opportunity for students to showcase, discuss and disseminate their work in a formal setting.
Dear Midlands Soil Discussion Group Member
If you have received a link to this post on the MSDG website it is because you are considered to be a member of the Midlands Soil Group. We now have a mechanism for communicating with each other. So I hope we can now organise our meetings via this forum, ask questions, post comments regarding meetings etc. Please keep in touch with group developments and there will be a lot more to come over the next few months. Remember it is International Year of Soil this year starting (I believe on 5 December approx.
Best wishes, Barry Rawlins
