To celebrate 2015 as the Environmental Year of the Soil, Howick Prep School Art Club has created a sculpture which represents the soil as the heart of nature and all creatures that live in or above the soil using it for food, burrowing or hibernation.
Soil is a vital part of the natural environment. It provides a habitat for a wide range of organisms and the everyday things we use such as food, clothes, furniture etc. All animals living on the land need soil and plants to survive. Without healthy soil we can’t grow the food that we need.
