Dirt Rich Film Showing at Brickworks

Posted August 31, 2019 at 5:47 am by

In col­lab­o­ra­tion with the San Juan Island Fall Farm Tour (https://islandgrownsj.com/), Fri­day Har­bor Film Fes­ti­val will screen Dirt Rich at 6:30 pm on Sep­tem­ber 20 at Brick­works. Marceli­na Cra­vat, the film’s direc­tor, will lead a live­ly post-show dis­cus­sion. Admis­sion is free. Dona­tions will be accept­ed to sup­port SJI Farm Tours. A pre-show social will begin at 6 pm with refresh­ments avail­able for purchase.

Dirt Rich explores strate­gies that re-sta­bi­lize atmos­pher­ic car­bon lev­els and revi­tal­ize the soil in an effort to reverse the effects of run­away glob­al warm­ing and to pro­tect life as we know it. The film inspires the view­er to dis­cov­er that through the return of car­bon to the soil, we solve two of the most chal­leng­ing envi­ron­men­tal issues of the day.

It explores and endors­es a vari­ety of geo-ther­a­py strate­gies — such as regen­er­a­tive agri­cul­tur­al prac­tices, refor­esta­tion of aban­doned land, and the pro­tec­tion and restora­tion of car­bon-rich wet­lands and key­stone species – all of which will help return our atmos­phere to safe car­bon lev­els. And in the process, one of our frag­ile earth’s most pre­cious resources, its soil, will be protected.
