Soil-to-Soil Meal is a social gathering that considers the importance of food and waste, and brings people together to have intersectional dialogues around ecology and our commons. Aru Bhartiya (The Millet Kitchen) emphasizes on Millets as biodiverse grains that care for both soil and the community. Participants are invited to make the recipes which have been thought out considering what doesn’t go in to nourish our body, nourishes the soil through composting and bio-fertilizers or to create new life with seeds and leftovers. Participants are also encouraged to share their personal experiences with food, farming, food sources and its people, empowerment of agricultural communities, role of socio-cultural politics and legal rights that impact our commons.
Soil-to-Soil Meal is hosted by Party Office in collaboration with “The Millet Kitchen”, a home and kitchen in Jaipur (India) that presents a model for sustainable living. Practicing urban farming, supporting ethical food sources including small farmers and indigenous communities, solar powered and promotes Millets and biodiversity on the plate.
