How green does your garden grow?

Part of the Cafe Scientifique programme at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition

Soil - every garden, large or small, has some - but do we know what's going on in our soil and how this could be affecting climate change and biodiversity

Soil is a valuable store of carbon, and soil health has a direct effect on the health of the plants growing in them. Could improving the soil in our farms, gardens and wildlands be used to combat climate change?

Join Professor Richard Bardgett, Lancaster University, to discuss the science of soil and the direct effects on climate change, with Edward Ikin, head gardener at Nymans, a National Trust property in West Sussex. Find out how small changes you could make in your own garden could help reduce global climate change and have added ecological benefits.

This event is part of the Cafe Scientifique programme at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition. Cafes will take place in the Terrace Cafe. They are free and open for all to attend, just grab a drink and get talking! Audience participation is strongly encouraged.
