More to come

@soil wide web

Soilmates is a collective of artists and artisans, of wild farmers, mindful chefs and conscious eaters, of activists and soil scientists.
The earth is a living organism where the fertile soil is essential to all life, both above and below the ground.
The aim is to restore the connection and to create a healthy food system from the soil up.
2 playgrounds: Soilmates In the Fields want to reconnect citizens with nature  x  Soilmates In the City want to raise questions how people relate to the bare ground under their feet.
The soil is given a voice through art, crafts and culinary experiences. With all six senses wide open each person is invited to step into the unexpected of the hidden half of nature.

SOILMATES are people willing to think holistically about the food system. Their aim is to create a paradigm shift in which the living earth becomes the center of the culinary experience, rather than the chef and the farmer. By choosing a regenerative farming system and ensuring healthy soil, we – and future generations – will be able to continue to enjoy this bountiful array of delicious and flavorful foods.
