Dirt! The MovieAugust 7, 2009
A look at man's relationship with Dirt. Dirt has given us food, shelter, fuel, medicine, ceramics, flowers, cosmetics and color --everything needed for our survival. For most of the last ten thousand years we humans understood our intimate bond with dirt and the rest of nature. We took care of the soils that took care of us.

A millennial shift in consciousness about the environment offers a beacon of hope - and practical solutions.
