THE SOIL STORY
Hands in the Soil is a creative wellness company focused on (elevating the culture of how we see ourselves and the natural world.) elevating our relationship with nature and each other. We take action through art, culture and collaboration to provide unique events, workshops and experiential programs. We love having good times under the sun, growing and eating good food and creating thought-provoking content for positive change.
Our path is to influence and support people in growing their connection with the earth and each other. We use food, art education and dialogue as natural aids to balance our well-being and thrive together.
Soil holds a bit of a double meaning; we know that soil is a medium for natural occurring growth, but it’s also an example/metaphor for us humans and the environment in which we live.
Within the soil of the earth itself, lies a diversity of life. When soil is healthy, it is because there are millions of microorganisms living in community, thriving off of each other’s existence. From the healthy exchanges and relationships that take place in the soil, we are able to sew our seeds, grow our food and feed our families.
When soil [our environment for growth] is unhealthy, things become out of balance. In recent times, the use of synthetic fertilizers [drugs] has been developed to improve the production [work] rate of food [money], and when applied, the microorganisms [humans] within that soil [environment] become lazy and dependent on those chemicals [drugs]. Therefore, the soil [environment] is not self sustainable and is no longer a thriving community. Over time, these synthetics [drugs] sink deeper into the soil [environment], and end up having great adverse affects on the natural processes of the future growth, within the soil [environment].
We are the keepers of the soil. The regenerators. The rebuilders. We are the ones who cultivate the seeds of our ancestors.
We are the Hands in the Soil.
Hands In The Soil’s vision is to create a new matrix of freethinking, earth-friendly,
high-functioning creative humans.
Our goal is to activate the power of community to enhance positive social impact and nurture the next generational leaders.
