Below Ground: Soil Life in a Changing Climate - Irish Agricultural Museum, Johnstown Castle, Co Wexford - September 30th - November 6th | 11am - 3pm
What goes on below our feet? A bustling community of plant roots, tiny animals, and microbes underpin our way of life – bringing us food, cleaning water, and regulating our climate. How are vibrant soil communities affected by climate change? How will it affect us?
The life and wonder of soil is always with us, but rarely seen. Join us on a journey of discovery below ground!
Featuring the artwork of: Cathy Reddy, Eileen Hutton, Frank Ashwood, Giulia Canevari, Hanneke van Ryswyk, Wim van Egmond, and more!
