dirtMade from the same elements as stars, plants, and human beings, dirt is very much alive. One teaspoon of dirt contains a billion organisms working in balance to sustain a series of complex, thriving communities that are invisibly a part of our daily lives. DIRT! The Movie tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and under appreciated source of fertility — from its miraculous beginning to its tragic degradation. This insightful and timely film tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet.DIRT!  The Movie brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political importance of soil and suggest ways we can create new possibilities for all life on Earth.

Sponsored by the Guilford Community Garden Hub and the Guilford Free Library.  The movie will be followed by a discussion led by Tom Finnegan, a board member of the Guilford Community Garden Hub and manager of the compost operation at the garden.
