Whitechapel Gallery - Urban Ecology Dig

An urban excavation investigating all living things beneath the surface of the city, with the Gallery’s young peoples group. Hosted by Vinnie O’Connell (Fellow of the Linnean Society of London) and founder of New Leaf Project, the event involved digging in the local area and transporting a spade of earth back to the gallery to explore with Dr. David T Jones (soil ecologist and earthworm expert from the Natural History Museum) and Dr. James Bone (environmental scientist from Imperial College London), both members of OPAL (Open Air Laboratories).
