Special FREE Screening of “Dirt”

(Via Brian Higgins/Sustainable Greensboro Listserv)

In advance of the Sustainable Agriculture Conference in Winston-Salem December 3-5, CFSA* members and Krankies Coffee invite you to experience DIRT! The Movie.

Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth’s climate. Dirt is the ultimate natural resource for all life on earth.

Yet most humans ignore, abuse, and destroy our most precious living natural resource. Consider the results of such behavior: mass starvation, drought, floods, and global warming, and wars. If we continue on our current path, Dirt might find another use for humans, as compost for future life forms.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Another world, in which we treat dirt with the respect it deserves, is possible and we’ll show you how.

The film offers a vision of a sustainable relationship between Humans and Dirt through profiles of the global visionaries who are determined to repair the damage we’ve done before it’s too late. There are many ways we can preserve the living skin of the earth for future generations. If you care about your food, water, the air you breathe, your health and happiness…you will be uplifted and entertained by this engaging film.

Join us at a/perture cinema, 311 West Fourth Street in downtown Winston-Salem, for a FREE showing of this beautiful film on Tuesday, November 30 at 8 p.m.
