Back in March, the MoS hosted a film about seeds, and asked for some UHLers to do a presentation on guerilla gardening and seed bombs. It was such a success that they've asked for our help again in January! This time they're hoping for a couple of people who could present
I've pasted further details about the event below. If you're interested, please let me know and I'll put you in touch with the Museum.

Join us to explore the complexity and mystery of a miraculous substance¾soil. ‘Symphony of the Soil’ draws from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, and shares the voices of some of the world’s most esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists. Filmed on four continents, it portrays soil as a protagonist in our planetary story. By understanding the elaborate relationships between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, and humans, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. Soil is alive, and its health and survival are intricately connected to that of all life. A panel discussion follows the screening.
