"Symphony of the Soil" - The Film
Tuesday, November 11
If you’re like me (Gretchen V.), as a kid you made little mud cakes and set them out to dry in the sun. This requires digging up soil, throwing in some water, a handful of sandbox sand, and whipping up just the right blend so the cake won’t crack as it dries. I was learning about soil.
Symphony of the Soil beautifully, lovingly, respectfully offers up this most basic source of life, the mother of nearly all plant life that in turn makes life possible for animal life, us—the soil—for a closer look. Soil is alive with microorganisms that not only feed nutrients to root structures, they capture and hold atmospheric carbon, tucking it underground where it feeds the plant its most important building block for growth, carbon.
Learn more about the living skin of the earth separating biology from geology in Debra Koons Garcia’s well done, symphonically flowing, visually appealing treatment of this underappreciated natural resource and how you can nurture it.
