Mineral Components of Soil: What do plants grow on? (Thursday 11th July 2013)

Thu, 11/07/2013 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Botanic Garden

A guided walk with Asel Sartbaeva

Have you ever wondered why coffee from Hawaii tastes so great? Or, how radioactivity and pollution can be removed from soil? Or, why clay is so slippery when it rains? The answers to these questions lie in understanding the mineral content of soil and how it can impact soil and plant growth. Learn about minerals in the soil, how their atomic structure affects their properties and how they retain water and nutrients in soil. Led by Asel Sartbaeva.  

Thursday 11th July 2013.

This guided walk will take place at 6.30pm at the Botanic Garden and will last approximately an hour followed by a glass of wine or soft drink. Tickets cost £10 and can be booked online.
