Urban Soil Water Summit

Urban soil security changes our climate destiny. Our future prosperity is at stake in the face of increasingly complex problems including: drought, access to clean air and water, extinction of wildlife that supports our food supply, and other negative effects of climate change. In order to build truly resilient cities, we need leaders who are able to provide innovation and a break from the practices and thinking that got us to this point.

Over two days in February 2015 our internationally renowned speakers, in dialogue with YOU, our Summit attendees, will share strategies for:

• Restoring urban soils

• Reducing drought

• Creating a more verdant and economically viable city, and

• Sequestering carbon in the soil biome to reverse climate change.


Here in the City of Angels, we begin the collaboration with the billions of angels in the soil biome beneath our feet  to restore the soils of America’s urban environments.
