Part of the Street Program

The Greenpoint Bioremediation Project (gBP) is an artist-led creative cleanup and community partnership to innovate bioremediation practices for residents in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (one of the most polluted urban areas in the country). The gBP, in collaboration with the Urban Soils Institute at Brooklyn College, has been conducting research employing mushrooms to clean toxins from the soil while investigating how to enhance the beneficial microorganisms already living in it.

Participate by bringing your own soil sample to be tested. We will make visible the bacteria, minerals, and contaminants beneath our feet to discover the virtues and vices of the urban soils that support our environment.

Participating Organizations: The Greenpoint Bioremediation Project (gBP)
