Free Soil was an international hybrid collaboration of artists, activists, researchers and gardeners who take a participatory role in the transformation of our environment. Free Soil fostered discourse, developed projects and gave support for critical art practices that reflect and change the urban and natural environment. Art can be a catalyst for social awareness and positive change.
The Free Soil website was a public resource for the exchange of related ideas and for learning. It was a way to connect discourses similar in content but separated by geography. The website included features, news, and reviews about relevant artists, exhibitions, books, architecture, public projects and sustainability.
