Soils in the City: Urban Anthropedology & Citizen-Activist Bioremediation

City soils today are largely non-existent, degraded or contaminated, and many urban residents are disconnected from the role that soils play in ecosystem health and environmental justice. We’ll examine the “critical zone” of soils in cities and highlight actions for citizens and opportunities for partnerships with biological allies to regenerate the health of urban soils.
