Initiated by the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW), Soil Culture is a three year programme which reveals how arts and culture explore the vital, ecological importance of soil. It's important cultural partners include Kew Gardens, London and Eden Project, Cornwall. Soil Culture demonstrates the UK contribution to the United Nations International Year of Soils, 2015. The programme consists of various events, in particular 12 artist residencies (featuring Touchstone Collaborations, Bristol, and Karen Guthrie, among others) aimed at encouraging an exploration of the ecology and importance of soil. The project has climaxed with a major group exhibition, Soil Culture: Deep Roots (Falmouth Art Gallery and Plymouth Peninsula Arts in 2015/16), which brings together the work of six important international environmental artists: Paolo Barrile, Mel Chin, herman de vries, Richard Long, Ana Mendieta, and Claire Pentecost.
