Meet a soil scientist at Open Farm Sunday - members needed!

Meet a soil scientist at Open Farm Sunday!

The Society is looking for members to team up with farmers this year for Open Farm Sunday (OFS) to bring soil science to the farm. OFS is an annual open doors, family friendly event for the general public to find out about food and farming. The event is on Sunday 11 June 2017 and participating farms are listed on the OFS website https://farmsunday.org/

The education committee and the regional groups are supporting this event. We are looking for members to volunteer to stand in a soil pit and engage with the public on farms in your region that are participating in the OFS event.

You can go through your local BSSS regional network representative who may able to help pair you with a farm or soil scientist in your area http://www.soils.org.uk/regional-groups. They will also be able to provide further information.

You can also find participating farms on the OFS website and contact them directly to ask if they are interested in hosting a soil scientist from the British Society of Soil Science.
