Nance Klehm has grounded her life in the practice of digging in the dirt. As the director of Social Ecologies (socialecologies.net), she works on soil restoration and remediation, long-term landscape planning, and community-focused regenerative soils and water systems in Chicago and around the world. An internationally respected consultant, speaker, and teacher, she has contributed to the ongoing body of knowledge about soils and how to rebuild microbial, mycological, and mineral communities through her publication The Ground Rules, her radio show "Spontaneous Vegetation," on Chicago's WLPN, and myriad writings and artworks of her own.

Her work demonstrates her lifelong commitment to redefining the way human populations coexist with plant and animal systems on this planet. Now, with the publication of The Soil Keepers, she is sharing that commitment with you. A collection of 42 interviews with international practitioners whose work connects them to the earth -- geologists, farmers, artisans, engineers, biologists, waste managers, activists, and many many others -- The Soil Keepers is the culmination of years of getting down and dirty thinking about soil. Klehm’s five essays and introduction frame the collection, offering up both the poetry and materiality of the ground beneath our feet for consideration.
