The EQC Presents:

Symphony of the Soil
Saturday, June 28, 2014
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Rialto Cinemas Cerrito -
10070 San Pablo Ave, El Cerrito

The City of El Cerrito's Environmental Quality Committee is hosting a FREE SHOWING of this artistic feature length film that explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world’s most highly esteemed soil scientists, farmers, and activists, the film portrays soil as a protagonist of our planetary story. In a skillful mix of art and science, soil is revealed to be a living organism, the foundation of life on earth. Most people are soil-blind and “treat soil like dirt.” With the knowledge and wisdom revealed in this film, we can come to respect, even revere, this miraculous substance. The film inspires the understanding that treating the soil right can help solve some of our most pressing environmental problems including climate change, dead zones, water scarcity and world hunger.

The film will be followed by a discussion with the film maker Deborah Koons Garcia.
