On Wednesday, March 19, at 7pm we will view Symphony of the Soil by Mill Valley cinematographer Deborah Koons Garcia plus a few of the Sonatas of the Soil.
Cotati farmer and Slow Food Russian River member Roy Smith will talk about how he is building soil on Green Goose Farm, what role his pigs play, and what climate shifting has to do with it.
SYMPHONY OF THE SOIL is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. The film also examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil’s key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time. Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers.
Future events are on Wednesday, April 16 and Wednesday, May 14.
