Soil City is a long term project initiated by Open Jar Collective, to reimagine the city as if soil matters. http://www.soilcity.org.uk
Launching at Glasgow International 2016, we undertook a period of field research to initiate a conversation about soil and find out what people’s interest in it was. This included a Soil City Lab open every day from the 8th – 25th April, a programme of walks, talks and events and Soil City bikes equipped with a bespoke testing kit, which roved round the city.
The conversations and activities were documented on a daily basis and published in the field notes section of the soil city website.
This film produced by Johnny Barrington gives a snapshot of the range of activity we undertook during GI 2016.
