Event description

Description

Join Paul Dovey, the Farm Manager of Hauser & Wirth Somerset’s Durslade Farm, for an informative talk regarding the importance of the soil across our 1000-acre site.

Dovey will discuss how soil forms the backbone of the farm, taking us on a journey where we will learn more about the different types of soil and the crops it grows. As well as learning how we nurture and care for the soil, you will hear about the secrets it holds, such as the fossils and artefacts that have revealed the diverse history here at Durlsade.

This is a free event, however booking is required.

This event is part of Thrifty Thursdays – a series of free events running alongside the current exhibition ‘The Land We Live In – The Land We Left Behind’. Taking the exhibition as a starting point to explore themes relating to the rural, each week a different artist, writer, gardener, land-worker, academic or performer will join us. The bar will be open before the event from 5.45 pm until 6.30 pm. Please note, the main exhibition will be closed, however the Bourgeois Gallery, which is the final room in the exhibition, will be open.
