Without soil we can't live. In recognition of this fact, the United Nations has declared 2015 the International Year of the Soils.
In honor of world soil day, December 5, 2014, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and partners made this beautiful film, Symphony of the Soil, available for free streaming for one week. Today is the last day for you to enjoy this gift. Check it out here.
The FAO site offers this summary of the film: This new documentary by Deborah Koons Garcia, director of The Future of Food, is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. Filmed on four continents, it gives voice to an amazing cast of soil users : from scientists to farmers, activists to policy makers, historians to entrepreneurs featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers. It also highlights possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet.
