This zine about soil health, community health, and a love of dirt, is part of Mary Tremonte’s two year-long project with Grow Pittsburgh, as part of Pittsburgh’s Office of Public Art’s Environment, Health, and Public Art Initiative. You can view a panel discussion with Mary and the other artists working on this initiative, Ginger Brooks Takahashi and Aaron Henderson, and learn more about it here. Each artist collaborated with a local organization that addresses environmental pollution in our region to create temporary public artworks. These artworks address several distinct yet intersecting issues of environmental health: water pollution, air pollution, and lead toxicity in the soil.
This issue includes a feature on Soil Sisters Plant Nursery, an interview with Worm Return, how to build a compost sifter, how to screenprint with soil and more! The center spread is a poster about compost that you can pull out to hang by your bin.
These zines are distributed for free in Pittsburgh, and if you purchase one through Justseeds, proceeds go towards Grow Pittsburgh’s Master Composter program.
