About Us

The Soil Factory was founded in Ithaca, NY, in mid-2021 to serve as an experimental space to develop innovative ways of bringing diverse actors together to tackle the most pressing issues of our time. The Soil Factory explores art-science approaches together with the local community, policy makers, the academic community, and anyone in the Ithaca region and globally who is interested in building an unusual platform of creative engagement. The Soil Factory is organized by WeaveCommunity, an Ithaca-based community organization. This website lists programming, links to information of those engaging with this initiative, and invites your participation. It will be built out to chronicle past activities.
