Join us for the opening of Dirty Secrets, an exhibition celebrating the International Year of Soil 2015.
Curated by Dr Renee Beale
Dirty Secrets uncovers the hidden curiosities buried in soil, encouraging a deeper search for our connection to the land and its importance to our survival.
“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” – Wendell Berry.
Have we forgotten to consider the soil as living and breathing, as the source of our food and many life saving pharmaceuticals, a contributor to our physical and psychological wellbeing, an important store of carbon, and water purifier?
