Site visits 2016

From the 8th and 25th of April 2016 the Soil City mobile researchers went out on bikes equipped with a bespoke testing kit, popping up in different locations to get people actively involved in surveying, documenting and responding to the soil. We explored soil type, how many worms there were and why that’s important, and what stories the soil has to tell if you dig a little deeper.

Communities from across Glasgow joined us for drawing, writing, printing, digging, worm identification and conversation.
