Seed Bed - A Soil Symposium

Cohosted by UCSC's E.A.R.T.H. Lab, the UCSC Farm & Garden, and the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), this free interdisciplinary symposium on the state of soil will feature performances, interactive activities and visual artwork installed throughout campus.
Panels will take place in the Cowell Ranch Hay Barn exploring a diverse range of topics from microbes to waste management, labor and farming; the magic of composting and soil science.
Seedbed will explore how climate change and human industry have endangered our topsoils – rendering it deadly- as well as the amazing life sustaining potential of what we call “dirt.” See the website for schedule details and more information.
