Soil Chemistry Challenge

Public event
7 April 2014, 11am-5pm: Free
at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, EH3 5LR
for families and the general public
Members of the public discover our science with Tim George

Do your own experiments to see what you could add to soil to help plants grow better, and learn about pH – with spectacular results. Join scientists from Scotland’s leading land use and crop research institute, the James Hutton Institute, to investigate how we can improve soil to suit the crops we want to grow.

The free family drop in event at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh is suitable for everyone aged 5+. It is part of Edinburgh International Science Festival.

The James Hutton Institute will also host SciMart, a farmers market with a scientific twist, on 6 April at Summerhall as part of the festival. Booking for this event is open now.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
