Soil Kitchen: The City’s First Ever Temporary Public Art Project

Soil Kitchen is coming to Philadelphia this April. Commissioned by the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, it is a new temporary public art project that is designed to address issues of sustainability in our urban environment and help everyone discover new ways to make our city better while keeping things green.

The installation is being executed by the artist group Futurefarmers, which is based out of San Francisco. The project will incorporate community involvement, naturally generated energy, local foods, food exchange, the creative reuse of a brownfield site, and brownfield mapping. Those behind this work hope that it will provide a stage for interaction, dialogue, and education on topics of sustainability that impact every Philadelphian.

Look for it up at 2nd and Girard beginning in April!
