i enjoyed a dirty movie today

Well, actually it was more of a love story. A love story about dirt, probably the most overlooked natural resource, yet one of the most vital elements on the planet. Without healthy soil there would be no food... and we all know where that would lead us.

The film includes an all-star cast of ecological gurus gushing about the 'skin of the earth.' This list of heavyweights in the film just scratches the surface - Vandana Shiva, Nobel-peace-prize-winning Wangari Maathai, John Todd, Majora Carter of Sustainable South Bronx, and Andy Lipkis of TreePeople.

Check out the trailer, then see if it's playing near you!

After watching the film I'm feeling motivated to learn more about soil. Here are some resources I'm going to check out:

(You can also get this one at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Bookstore)
