Symphony of the Soil
Two Free Public Showings
The UN General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils with the intent of educating the global community about the importance of soil for human life. Soil is a non-renewable resource and its preservation is essential for food security and our sustainable future.
The film explores the reasons our soil is in danger and suggests changes that are needed. Filmed on four continents and with contributions from scientists and farmers, it explains how dirt is transformed into living soil and how many of our current practices are harming soil health. As The New York Times states, this film gives viewers "a new respect for the ground beneath our feet" and "the understanding that feeding our soil is the first step to feeding ourselves."
