"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver

DIRT! The Movie

DIRT! The Movie brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

Following the film, Keene State Professor, Dr. Mark Long, will facilitate a panel discussion on the topic of soil and its role as the foundation of a healthy food system - and society.
