The Event
We will learn about dirt and soil and its beauty, starting with Dirt! The Movie: A movie with heart and soil. Afterward we’ll continue the party with a Q&A panel about healthy soil and composting with local experts. Root vegetable cooking competition will feature a host of local entries judged by our Q&A guest panelists. And if that wasn’t enough this special evening will also feature a collection of talented local visual artists and crafters riffing on this uniquely themed gallery.
The Film
DIRT! The Movie–directed and produced by Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow–takes you inside the wonders of the soil. It tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility–from its miraculous beginning to its crippling ruin. “Drought, climate change, even war are all directly related to the way we are treating dirt.”
