2nd Wednesday Lecture: Building a Culture of Soil Keepers

December 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Soil Health


“Healing Our Soils Together: Building a Culture of Soil Keepers”

We are in for a treat as we transition to the new year with Social Ecologies as a focal point!

Join us as we learn about “engaging local residents, instigating ecological projects, [and] building regenerative systems” in our selves & communities through soil & soul.

Nance Klehm has grounded her life in the practice of digging in the dirt. As the director of Social Ecologies, she works on soil restoration and remediation, long-term landscape planning, and community-focused regenerative soils and water systems in Chicago and around the world. An internationally respected consultant, speaker, and teacher, she has contributed to the ongoing body of knowledge about soils and how to rebuild microbial, mycological, and mineral communities through her publication The Ground Rules, her radio show “Spontaneous Vegetation,” on Chicago’s WLPN, and myriad writings and artworks of her own.

This experience is free and open to the public. Excited to see you!

At Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance we hope to accommodate you in you having your best experience. If you have a request for accommodations, please contact Mattie Wilson at mwilson@garfieldpark.org or 773-638-1766.
