The second Living Soil Forum will take place July 9th – 11th 2014 , with a 1-day ‘action incubator’ on July 12th; all at the Kulturhuset in Järna, Sweden.

Summer of Soil presents the  Living Soil Forum to activate and empower people to secure a better future for our soils. Through engaging key players in the agricultural system, from producers to consumers, we seek to connect people and ideas; to create common understanding; to integrate existing initiatives; and to promote genuine, cross-sector collaboration. The focus will be on solutions that work to secure and restore healthy, living soils for the sake of our health, food-security and climate.

Since the FAO has declared the year 2015 ‘International Year of Soil’, we invite all those willing and passionate about rebuilding and maintaining living soils to the second edition of the Living Soil Forum.

This years focus will be on exchanging, collaborating and strategizing for actions and campaign to be launched in the year 2015; the International Year of Soil.
