The Salt Tree Project aspires to create a rich community space in an unprecedented visionary environment. On the canvas of an edible landscape, a multi-acre art installation becomes the grounds for collaborative explorations of ecology and the arts. By uniting land, art, and community, the Salt Tree Project becomes a center for innovation and creativity.
Ecology and the arts will be intertwined in the space’s creation and operation. Artists, horticulturalists, and practitioners in allied fields will be working collectively to build and maintain an edible landscape as a multi-acre art installation that supports community engagement.
The edible landscape will produce an abundance of foods and natural resources for community use. The project will use pioneering techniques in the field of regenerative agriculture, which moves beyond sustainability to enhance soil and water health, improve biodiversity, and offset global climate change by storing atmospheric carbon.
The Salt Tree Project will build a community of engagement that:
fosters innovative research on food systems and environmental management;
supports broad participation in the project as an inspired place to create and discover art;
promotes education and open dialogue through ongoing workshop and conference programming;
hosts public festivals, performances, and other events that showcase the project’s work.
