US/Central

Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil explores the miraculous substance soil. By understanding the elaborate mutual beneficial relationships 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.

Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers, Symphony of the Soil highlights the possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet. "It makes you care about our Earth's precious skin, so rare among planets," The Washington Post.
