So my inner soil geek is having kittens right now. I’m SO excited about this gathering…
SoilHack Gathering 2017
What: A weekend to share our passion, knowledge, and skills for building healthy soils
When: 27 – 28th May 2017 (arrivals welcome Friday evening)
Where: Brook End LAND Centre, Compton Dundon – near Street and Glastonbury in Somerset
is a knowledge sharing network focused on soil. It is part of the FarmHack
movement and has been born out of the need to save what soils we have with the best information possible.
The first national SoilHack Gathering is taking place this summer at Brook End LAND Centre
just outside Street (near Glastonbury) in Somerset. We invite you to come to contribute your experiences, share good ideas and learn about soil regeneration. This is a DIY movement where we collectively learn about soils and apply our learning in our own gardens and farms. We try to bring the best research to life and share it horizontally.
The Gathering will involve workshops led by participants with practical experience in soil biology, biochar, agroforestry, cover cropping and more. We will also create a space to explore how to build the SoilHack movement in an effort to defend, repair and build soils that are essential to life. It is a not-for-profit event with financial support to enable access and participation. Contributions are sliding scale between £25 – £125 for the weekend including meals and camping.
