Summer of Soil
Spanning the summer from June to August 2013, the Summer of Soil consisted of three main components: a series of Courses designed to raise awareness and share knowledge on a range of soil related topics, a beautiful Exhibition showcasing the power and potential of our soils, and the Living Soil Forum, a five day event bringing together soil enthusiasts from around the globe to consider the state of soil globally and design ways forward.
Each of these three components were resounding successes: the Living Soil Forum was attended by over 130 participants from over 20 countries and yielded 13 active design projects. We offered 9 courses to a final total of 101 students of all ages, and our exhibition received over 4000 visitors! All in all, the Summer of Soil has been a great success, inspiring soil stewardship and furthering the global soil movement.
