SAVE THE DATE! Film Night January 31, 2014

Phone Downloads March 2013 030

Join with neighbors to watch Symphony of the Soil at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center, 7 pm, January 31, 2014. Doors will open at 6:30 pm We will watch the movie together and discuss it afterwards. Symphony of the Soil is a 103-minute documentary that explores the complexity and mystery of soil. Filmed on four continents and sharing the voices of some of the world’s most esteemed soil scientists, farmers and activists, the film portrays soil as a hero of our planetary story. Using a captivating mix of art and science, the film shows that soil is a complex living organism, the foundation of life on earth.
