Symphony of the Soil gala screening – 14 August 2016

by | Aug 2, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Support this exclusive screening of award-winning documentary Symphony of the Soil at the Labia Theatre on Sunday 14 August – a fundraiser for @SoilforLife.

Join MC Nik Rabinowitz for an entertaining ‘green’ evening and help change the world one garden at a time.

US based film-maker Deborah Koons Garcia has graciously given permission for Soil for Life to host the South African premiere as she believes her film’s message resonates with the work of this pioneering not-for-profit organisation and will highlight the urgency of rehabilitating our planet’s most precious resource – the soil. “We’re on a mission to build healthy soil, people and communities,” says Pat Featherstone, founder of Soil for Life. “Feeding the soil is the first step in feeding ourselves.”

Symphony of the Soil explores how different types of soil live as a complex and mysterious ecosystem, thriving on nutrition and care. Filmed in Israel, India, USA and UK, the film spotlights the efforts of scientists, farmers and foodies to transform dead dirt into living soil, feeding natural compost, growing cover-crops and using drip irrigation to miraculously regenerate the soil. Jeanette Catsoulis from the ‘New York Times’ describes how this “ode to the miracle of the Earth’s topmost layer gives us a newfound respect for the ground beneath our feet.”

This gala fundraising event promises to be enlightening, educational and entertaining, with comedian and dedicated eco-warrior Nik Rabinowitz as MC. Tickets are R200 per person and include yummy plant-based snacks and a glass of Stellar Organic wine. All profits go to Soil for Life and will help change the world one garden at a time.
