Filmmaker Gene Rosow talks Dirt!
Posted by Cari @ The Kathleen Show
“Some of the best organic farmers and gardeners say we don’t grow food, we grow soil…we feed the soil, the soil feeds us.” –Gene Rosow
We know the importance of planting trees, conserving water, going organic…but there’s another crucial element to think about. Yes, we’re talking dirt. The health and availability of our soil affects the health and availability of our food.
And as filmmaker Gene Rosow depicts in his Sundance award-winning documentary Dirt!, we are quickly putting it at risk through industrial agriculture, pesticides, monocrops and urban development. In his interview with Kathleen, Gene explains why taking care of our soil is so important and what we can do to help create change. (Hint: Organizing a community screening of Dirt! is a good place to start).
Listen to Gene’s interview (he dishes on Sundance too):
Listen to Kathleen’s monologue about making simple changes in our own lives that can add up to big changes in the market and for our earth.
