SOIL SATURDAYS open 10am – 10pm

Every week in July and August, Soil Saturdays animate the exhibitions with a convivial medley of experiences – hands-on workshops, school activities, films, farm visits, music and conversations. Each Soil Saturday is co-hosted with local and national partners to explore the living matter of soil and experience how we can become soil guardians in our everyday lives.

FOOD HAPPENINGS

At each Soil Saturday, SOIL SISTERS honour the soils of Bristol and its hinterland by sharing the harvest of local farmers and growers. This ecological gastronomy is at the heart of Soil Culture at create. Through seasonal feasts, botanical brews, summer canapés, and thanks-giving rituals, the soil’s gift of food is brought to the table for awakening conversations.

OPENING

For the launch on Saturday 4 July we are in partnership with Arnolfini. Our summer celebration begins with a boat trip from Arnolfini to the floating Ballast Seed Garden with Clive Adams of CCANW and Soil Culture artist Sophie Mason in conversation. Later that day, Alys Fowler opens Soil Culture at create.

VISION

The vision of Soil Culture at create is to:
– explore the significance of soil in the every day and how it supports vibrant communities
- offer life changing experiences with the living matter of soil
- celebrate and connect  soil and food initiatives in Bristol, Green Capital
- make visible and taste-able relationships between living soil and healthy food
- share ways of gardening and farming which respect and enliven soils
- support action for policy changes to protect local and global soils
- create a lasting legacy which strengthens the soil, art and food movements
