For every soil type and every soil use, there is an army of experts waiting and willing to share their knowledge and experience. These aficionados might be scientists, gardeners, farmers or passionate amateurs and most will combine a general understanding of soil functions with a niche, local expertise they are dying to share – whether it’s how to improve the soil in your garden or allotment or how regenerative farming practices nearby are reaping rewards for both the environment and farm productivity.
To see first-hand evidence of innovative soil management, find a nearby soil expert or join a group of like-minded soil enthusiasts, the following organisaion, groups, experts and community networks will help.
Coming soon there will also be a new uksoils Community Forum where people can raise topics, create new networks and discuss between themselves experience, ideas and new things to try out.
uksoils is a consortium of scientific, campaigning and awareness raising organisations, all with a specialist knowledge of soil health, founded by UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Sustainable Soils Alliance, Earthwatch and University of Sheffield.
