Founder of the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada and former professor of Sustainable Food Production at the University of Guelph, Ralph Martin will bring our awareness back to the universe of soil. Spend some time contemplating the role soil plays in bringing us healthy food, ecosystems and cosmic connection.

We will be walking between a few locations so please wear appropriate footwear for walking in the fields.
Soil is stardust, undergirding life’s potential on Mother Earth and is a crucial component of terrestrial ecosystems. The flows of energy and nutrients are facilitated by the relationships of soil with water, air, plants, animals and numerous soil organisms. As planetary creatures we are connected by food to soil and life’s cycles. In this session we will contemplate the journey from the great flaring forth to soil to ourselves and will use shovels to explore living systems in the singular medium of soil.
