Micro ID - The Invisible World of Soil

24 Aug 2023

Explore the microscopic world of your garden, local park or forest!

Bring your own soil sample and let's see who's living in your garden, nearby park or forest! 

Explore the soil microcosm with Michelle Tyliki and The Fungi Club at our first Fungi Club event at our new location in Tottenham.

Learn to identify common microscopic morphologies (fungal hyphae, bacteria, nematodes, micro arthropods...) at 400x magnification using a compound microscope. 

We'll record the what we discover on the slides photographically and our findings will contribute to an ongoing open-source research project to help further develop the budding science of soil microscopy using AI.


We will have two sessions: 

  • Session 1: 17:00 - 19:00 

  • Session 2: 19:00 - 21:00

Soil sample needs to be taken on the day. You can use a ziplock bag, only need about a tablespoon. Keep out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. You can bring multiple samples.
