Mitti Chakkar

Posted on September 5, 2008

Mitti Chakkar (Hindi), Soil circle (English), exploring urban soil ecology

An effort to sample/archive soil from public spaces around Delhi, grow mustard plants (sarson) in it. Sarson acts as a phytoremediation agent and cleans the soil of toxins like Lead by storing it in its cells instead.

For a detailed description and find out more about the effort go here: http://st.ation.in/wiki/projects:soil-workshop

I will post some sketches from my note-book soon.
