If you’re anywhere near Edinburgh, then this might be just what you want.
The Soil Association & LfS Scotland, in Association with the James Hutton Institute, invite you to the Edinburgh premier of Symphony of the Soils followed by a personal Q&A session with the director Deborah Koons as part of the celebrations for the International Year of the Soils.
Symphony of the Soils is an exploration of the miraculous substance soil which draws from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource.
The film also examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil’s key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time.
It’s on September 30th. If you can’t get there, you can at least watch the trailer.
