"DIRT! THE MOVIE" (http://dirtthemovie.org/)

DIRT! THE MOVIE - narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis - brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

DIRT! THE MOVIE is simply a movie about dirt. The real change lies in our notion of what dirt is. The movie teaches us: "When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked." But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT! THE MOVIE is a call to action.

"As a practicing soil scientist in Ontario I have seen the loss of many hectares of an irreplaceable resource due to urbanization and industrialization and the loss of productivity in many more due to poor management practices. I think as Agrologists we should have a say and lead the way to inform and advocate for this vital resource. In the age of food security issues the difference may lay in the soils at your feet!" - David.
