Earth/Work is a conversation series featuring individuals creating sustainable lives—radically reimagining our connection and use of our planet. Audiences will hear short, informal presentations about what led each speaker to embark on their creative paths and what keeps them moving forward. Participation, discussion, and questions encouraged.

Brooke Salvaggio is an organic farmer and sustainability leader in the Kansas City area. She owns and operates URBAVORE Urban Farm with her partner Dan Heryer where they produce vegetables, fruits, pastured eggs and pork using regenerative farming practices. The couple also manages Compost Collective KC—a popular curbside compost pickup service that diverts 12,000 pounds of food waste from the landfill every week. This food waste is brought to the farm and turned into nutrient-rich compost, curbing climate change and improving the farm’s soil to grow more and better food for the KC Community.

Once upon a time Brooke was a visual artist. Now she uses dirt as her medium for artistic expression.
