SOILMATES are people willing to think holistically about the web of life. Our aim is to create a paradigm shift in which the living earth becomes the center of the culinary and artistic experience, rather than the chef, artist or the farmer. The soil becomes the subject.
By choosing a regenerative farming and food system and ensuring healthy soil, we – and future generations – will be able to continue to enjoy this bountiful array of precious materials and delicious foods.
The Soilmates movement has been initiated by restaurant owners Caroline Baerten and Nicolas Decloedt (Humus & Hortense), farmer Dries Delanote (Le Monde des Mille Couleurs) and creative designer Alexandra Swenden (Swenden Studio).
Since then, the collective has been joined by numerous chefs, regenerative farmers, artists, artisans, eco-warriors, scientists, and food experts.
