Description

Registration is Required for each event day.

Join us for the Urban Soils Fest Weekend! A 4-day event series. Oct 11-14, 2019

Come with friends, family, colleagues, and join us for in-depth discussions, workshops, art-science exhibits, food, music, harvest festival with local urban farms, and games, soil pits, and green infrastructure field tour. Experience the world of soils in our city and how they secretly support our city and daily lives. We are all tied to the soils-in more ways than we even know. In more ways than science knows. Let’s celebrate what we know and embrace what we don’t.

The theme of the Urban Soils Fest Weekend is exploring the diversity and development of soils in the urban world, and how they hold the capacity to build and optimize biodiversity and ecological productivity.

There isn’t enough room here to go into detail about each day of the weekend. Please visit usi.nyc to find more details.



DAY 1: Friday Oct. 11th, 2019 Annual Urban Soils Symposium ($28)

USI is a platform for people and their soils; for connecting, collaborating, developing and seeking non-typical relationships and collaborations, that are united in soils.

The Annual Urban Soils Symposium has become the heart and product of this mission, bringing together people of different backgrounds, philosophies, disciplines, and cultures, to stitch together efforts, challenge today for tomorrow, and to unite and strengthen our mutual goal: To make things better, to be better, to have a healthier us and planet.

The speakers and audience are equally important, the presentations being the stimulus to the discussion. Everyone coming from different backgrounds, puts everyone on the same level, making everyone an equal part of the symposium and discussion.
