As part of my BSSS Presidential work, I spent last Tuesday night and Wednesday in Aberdeen. On Tuesday evening I met and chatted with IPSS Chair Jason and then on Wednesday, with a full day I met Liz Baggs, the new President Elect at the University, and afterwards, with Helaina, Kathryn and Willie, we met and chatted about soils education plans as well as thinking ahead to the Glasgow 2022 bid. here are some of the merry gathering just before I dashed off for the train home.....

Out in the rainforest

I am currently in the Republic of Panama at Ben Turner's organic P workshop and was lucky enough to spend a day before with Jefferson Hall, as he guided us around the Agua Salud Tropical Forest Plantation experiments. It was an inspiring day for me and PhD students Vito and Will, pictured here with Jeff on the right. Thanks Jeff for a great day - more detail and photos to follow later.
