Symphony of the Soil: Movie Screening

Lake Morey Resort
Fairlee, VT

Whether you farm, or are a fan of good food, or passionate about water quality and soil health, we invite you to join us for a special event.

Come join us for a screening of Symphony of the Soil, an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance that is the basis of all growing things. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality 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 is an intriguing presentation that highlights possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet. 

$12 per person (free for conference attendees), includes fresh-popped Vermont-grown popcorn and a group discussion for any who wish to participate. 

Here’s the link to reserve your seat or read more about the movie.

This event is part of the 20th Annual Vermont Grazing & Livestock Conference taking place January 15 & 16, 2016.   We hope you'll join the Vermont Grass Farmers and Vermont Beef Producers’ Associations and the UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture to celebrate twenty years of livestock farming vitality through a combination of technical workshops, social events, lunch discussions, hearty food, and great company.
