Soil City

Open Jar Collective project launched at Glasgow International 2016

Soil City is a long term project initiated by Open Jar Collective, to reimagine the city as if soil matters. Read more about the project on the Soil City website.

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 our field notes. Watch a short film made during Glasgow International about the project.

The next stage of the project is a publication due to be launched in October and a series of Soil City Lab events to keep the conversation going, while we identify opportunities and resources for future development.
