WHY SUPPORT US?
The British Society of Soil Science (BSSS) is an established international membership organisation and charity committed to the study of soil in its widest aspects. Our aim is to advance the education of the public, and scientists, on the subject of soil science and to promote research and professional standards of practice, and to publish those results. With your support, you can help us to deliver our charitable objectives and secure the future of soils that is critical to solving the environmental and societal challenges we face today.

There are a number of ways in which you can donate to the Society and make a difference to the future of soil science. Your generosity will make a positive difference in the sustainable management and long-term security of soils.
