After the killing of her brother on the southeast side of Chicago in a gun violence incident, Chantel Johnson looked for ways to provide her basic needs, which her community desperately lacked.

Our practice is holistic: our work finding and telling stories of the earth depends utterly on our understanding of it. Thus our team includes farmers, scientists, and a commitment to thoughtful field research and reporting.


We work with communities and public agencies to revive land by restoring and researching native plant and pollinator habitat, supporting urban agriculture, and activating community green spaces.  By creating space to convene artistic and cultural expressions, we seek to inhabit the intersection of art and science.
