This year is the United Nations' International Year of Soil. My friend Debra Koons Garcia is one of soil's true champions and her film Symphony of the Soil has won acclaim from farm folk as well as the Washington Post, Village Voice and the New York Times.
"This film raises the bar. It makes you care about our earth's precious skin, so rare among planets."
-Barbara Damrosch, Washington Post
"Stimulating and visually engaging..."
-John Oursler, Village Voice
"Unfolding with gentle joy and an unexpected beauty, this ode to the miracle of the Earth's topmost layer gives us a newfound respect for the ground beneath our feet."Deborah will be speaking at the U.S. Congress at a congressional briefing on the soil-carbon Connection, courtesy of Congressman Jarred Huffman who represents Marin County.
-Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
In honor of that occasion, she has decided to make the film free on Vimeo for two weeks, starting today. So be sure to see it and get that Earth-Day-feel-good glow! And tell your friends.
Your free screening comes with subtitles - Spanish ones for April 13-19 and French ones for April 20-26.
If you don't make it for the free version, you can still rent the film on Vimeo or buy a DVD to share with others.
