Celebrate Stewardship Week with us!
Sedgwick County Conservation District and the new Conservation Science program at Friends University are partnering to host a free viewing of the documentary Living Soil. When asked who should come and see the film, I began listing those you might expect: farmers, Biology/Ecology/Geology students, specialty crop producers, FFA students, 4-H groups, and Master Gardeners. Then I realized, "This matters to everyone! We all eat and soil is key to producing food." According to the Soil Health Institute "Our soils support 95 percent of all food production, and by 2060, our soils will be asked to give us as much food as we have consumed in the last 500 years."
If that is not compelling enough, consider that soil...
Living Soil was directed by Chelsea Myers of Tiny Attic Productions, and produced by the Soil Health Institute through the generous support of The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation.
