Environmental education and workshops

 

With Sounding Soil, we bring the sounds from below ground to the surface to let you experience soil life. These workshops build awareness of this complex and incredibly important ecosystem and its processes.

 

Sounding Soil for Schools

Together with GLOBE Switzerland, an established educational organization for earth system sciences, we are developing a learning activity for Sounding Soil. From spring 2020, the learning activity will be available either as part of the „LERNfeld“ project or independently for teachers. Pupils will be able to borrow recording devices to make audio recordings of soils and compare them with one another. In addition, they will be able to take soil samples and search for soil animals. Further information will follow.

 

Sounding Soil for hobby gardeners

Hobby gardeners are intensively involved with the soil. They dig it up, loosen it and care for the plants that grow on it. But people do not always recognize how important healthy soil is for everyone. Therefore, starting in 2020, we would like to offer information, tips and courses for promoting healthy soil and organic gardening together with partner organizations. Further information will follow.
