GROUNDING: Soils in the City

Nancy will address how action-research on and with the GROUND is a tool for knowledge
building, engaging the public, and shaping new policy.
Our urban experience is just as much biologically determined as it is socio-culturally
determined. Soil is a living sponge that filters our water and air, and is both
decomposition engine and support network for all living things. Soil allows for
the stability of our constructions; the resilience to flooding and drought; and
the health of our food, water and air. It is manipulated, engineered, cultivated
and remediated by engineers, agronomists, biologists, farmers, and activists.

Suggested $5 donation at the door.
Nancy Klehm is a steward of the earth. She is an ecological systems designer, landscaper,
horticultural consultant, and permacultural grower, as well as a teacher, speaker,
and consultant.

Nancy is respected internationally for her work on land politics and growing for
fertility. She is the bioinstigator-in-residence at the Center for Land Use Interpretation’s
off-the-grid site in the desert outside of Wendover, Utah. Nancy also designed,
helped build, and spent five years managing Greenhouses of Hope, a large scale,
closed-loop vermicompost and farming project that trains residents of Chicago’s
Pacific Garden Mission on horticulture, gardening, and composting techniques.

Nancy’s business, Nancy Klehm Gardens, Inc., has designed, installed, and maintained
hundreds of landscapes including backyards, community lots, rooftops, decks, and
public spaces. Her work focuses on edible, soil-building, and medicinal plants,
and habitat creation. She has designed large soil building systems, as well as
systems of collection, recirculation, and biological filtration of rain, grey, and
contaminated water. Nancy has worked on projects for the Museum of Contemporary
Art in Chicago, the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Chicago Park District, the Field Museum,
the Farm Lab of the Annenberg Foundation, and other private, public, and institutional
clients.

Archeworks envisions future communities.
We drive dialogue, policy, and city design.
We inspire a collaborative process.
We invent and test innovative prototypes
that shape healthy, beautiful, sustainable cities and places.
A multidisciplinary public interest design collaborative founded in 1994, Archeworks

micro-enterprises, and other community needs.
