Did you know that a single teaspoon of a healthy garden soil can hold up to one billion bacteria?

Provide a sample to learn about your own soil bacteria and help scientist Nicola Stanley-Wall in the School in her research into these bacterial communities! Collect 2 tablespoons of your garden soil or well-rotted compost into a sandwich bag and bring it along to:

P.L.A.N.T.’s Tayport Community Garden
on Sunday 23rd of July, 2-4pm 

We will process the samples together and you will get pictures of your own bacteria and information about them.

PLANT’s gardener will also be at hand to answer your questions about improving your garden soil.
