About this event
Have you heard the buzz about The Soil Factory but don't quite understand what it is? Once an industrial facility for mixing potting soil, the building and adjacent land have been transformed into an art-science maker space, sustainability lab, and venue for art shows, film screenings, workshops, scheming sessions, work parties, artist residencies, and other boundary-breaking activities. Soil Factory organizers will be on hand to give Story House guests a tour on Saturday, September 10, at 4:30 PM. The free event is part of our Placemakers series, which gives local people and organizations a chance to share their community-building work. The event is also part of the Soil Factory's 24-hour "Fantastic Weekend of Undisciplinary Research, Assembly, Place-making, Building, and Hanging Out," featuring a public program, panel, workshop, and campout. The action starts at noon on Saturday and ends at noon on Sunday. Come whenever, leave whenever, or stick around for the whole thing! The Soil Factory is organized by WEAVE Community, an Ithaca-based nonprofit dedicated to bringing people together. For more info, contact Neil Schill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
