Free Documentary With a Big, Bold Claim–Growing Food Can Solve The Majority of the World’s Problems
“Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,
the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.”
– Bill Mollison
We made this documentary to inspire people to be a part of a simple solution!
It is a documentary about you, me, and the current state of our planet – but most importantly it is about solutions – the solution – Grow Food. It may sound strange, but it turns out the solution to most of our environmental and health problems is right beneath our feet – soil.
Did you know that a large portion of the CO2 in the atmosphere actually came from the soil?
Did you know that plants grown and managed in a biologically conscious way can put that very carbon back into the soil?!
By growing healthy food, which creates healthy soil, we are able to decrease carbon in the atmosphere! What happens when plants and microbes build healthy soil? We have more resilient food systems, cleaner water, cleaner air, a better world. Not to mention less toxins in our food and environment! One simple act for so many benefits on so many levels! Of course we want to share this with everyone and shout it from the rooftops!
