Soil Kitchen is a new temporary public art project addressing issues of sustainability specific to the urban environment.

The project will incorporate community involvement, naturally generated energy, local foods, food exchange, the creative reuse of a brownfield site, and brownfield mapping. This new site-specific public artwork will provide a stage for interaction, dialogue, and education on topics of sustainability that impact every Philadelphian.

Timed to coincide with the arrival of the 2011 National Brownfields Conference in Philadelphia, Soil Kitchen is the first-ever temporary public art project to be commissioned by the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, and will be executed by the artist group Futurefarmers with a generous grant from the William Penn Foundation.

    The Soil Kitchen windmill is almost complete! Pending finished blades that will capture the wind’s power, Dave of the Futurefarmers build team imparted some of his own elbow grease to demonstrate the installation’s rotational potential in the video below.
