What is your relationship with our shared commons, the Soil?

Using our body tools of fingers, nose, and sight, we will access different soils’ capacity to filter our urban environment’s contaminated water and air and support our plants, animals and fungi. In this salon and workshop, we will prepare slides with local soil samples and peer into a microscope to observe microorganisms and fungal threads.

The short film: ‘Soil Listen’ (2011) by Katarzna Guzowska will be screened.


Nance Klehm has been an ecological systems designer, landscaper, horticultural consultant, and permacultural grower for more than two decades. Her approach is centered on instigating change by activating already existent communities, and her work demonstrates her lifelong commitment to redefining the way human populations coexist with plant and animal systems on this planet.
