On Saturday, July 19th we will come together at the Chat Lunatique, a private residence and future art gallery in the estates, to watch an amazing documentary Symphony of the Soil. Here are some details of the film:
“Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. 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.”
After the documentary there will be a discussion about soils and what strategies we can employ here in Southwest Florida to be successful with our sandy soil. Feel free to bring light snacks. See you then!
