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!

You are warmly invited to join us for the opening night – Friday, September 30th, 2022 from 5pm at the Irish Agricultural Museum, Johnstown Castle. Meet artists and scientists passionate about soil life and take a journey below ground to meet the vast diversity of critters and creatures that are essential for ecosystem functions we depend on: providing healthy food, clean water, and regulating our climate.
