mikroBIOMIK Soil Retreat 2019
Please write to email@example.com on which days you would like to be there (with or without accommodation), and whether you already have a topic / project idea in mind or would like to give a workshop.
Soil creation and regeneration requires a tightly intertwined and interwoven network of organisms and matter, from microbes to animals and plants. The crosstalk between all of those compounds enables seeds to sprout on fertile soil.
We believe that this diversity is always the key to creativity and innovation: HUMUS sapiens creates interdisciplinary crosstalk and collaboration from scientists, biohackers, artists and ecologists to farmers and gardeners, to share and build knowledge and tools for soil analysis and regeneration
The retreat will take place from Friday noon, 25th October until Sunday 27th October evening.
Where - Hosting & Accommodation
The Projekt Draussen, also known as `Klause zum Schindergraben` is in the middle of the woods close to the Isar. In the upper floor under the roof is a cozy space where up to 20 people can be hosted in individual beds. From there you have access to a small terrace to enjoy a calm moment. There are more two smaller rooms with loft beds which have access to the balcony directed to the south from where you can see the little river and catch sun all day long. Feel free to bring your sleeping bag, bedsheets can be also available. You can also bring your tent and mount it in any place of the territory.
How to get there
Projekt Draussen is located about 30 km in the South of Munich in the woods and close to the Isar.
By bicycle The bicycle tour along the Isar takes about 1-2 hours. There are the following possibilities:
- You start with your mountain bike on the Isar, for example in Munich at the Wittelsbacherbrücke, and orient yourself on the bike tour "Munich - Kloster Schäftlarn".
- Or you climb on your racing bike in Munich, choose an Isar site and orient yourself on one of these routes.
By public transport and walking
With the S-Bahn S7 direction Wolfratshausen you arrive from the Munich Marienplatz either in 33 minutes to Hohenschäftlarn or in 36 minutes to Ebenhausen-Schäftlarn.
From the S-Bahn station Ebenhausen-Schäftlarn, you can prepare for an Isar walk: route
If you need a Shuttle please send us an email! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
From Munich it takes about 30-40 min to reach Projekt Draussen by car following A95 or B11.

Julian Chollet (DE)
Julian Chollet is a (no)mad scientist, curious student and informal teacher with a background in molecular biology. He is working on the endless and underexplored biodiverity of microbes, fungi and phages - with the aim to liberate the world from microphobia through workshopology, fermentation and microscopy. His current main project focuses on creative learning environments and public participation in science with emphasis on the invisible world.
Josephine Blersch (DE/PT)
Josephine is scientist, teacher and actress. Her research is driven by curiosity and interdisciplinarity. Her prospective is the communication of science leading to scientific matter being accessible and understandable to public audience. She is actress and script-writer of a theatre company Marionet which translates scientific (u-)topics into theatre plays. Josephine´s ambition is the creation of a bridge between artistic expression and science.
Rolf Mahnke (DE)
Experience Designer. Rolf concentrates on the design of digital formats and physical spaces for creative work, learning and innovation. Develops concepts for the participatory design of scientific events.

Maya Minder (CH)
Maya Minder‘s (b. 1983, lives in Zürich) Gasthaus combines artistic, curatorial, and activist interests into communal culinary events at various locations. She designes dinner performances and also offers a series of workshops, including a biohacking workshop and a fermentation workshops and has teached more than hunderd of people. Fermentation repeatedly features as a central aspect of her work, not only literally but also in the metaphor of social fermentation, agitation, and incitation to resistance. Minder opposes the structures of food industry by promoting local selforganization, ecological sustainability, and community. She resuscitates traditional food productions methods with a certain relish, saving them from otherwise being forgotten and emphazises that threw fermenatation practise humans have always been biohackers. Her interests span the fields of art, politics, feminism, ethnobotanics and biohacking, and she often invites other protagonists from these and various other fields to participate in the process of communal exchange. Facilitating interdisciplinary, intercultural dialogue amongst the participants is one of the primary goals of her practice.
