Dirt! The Movie

Check local PBS listings to watch an interesting documentary that is being shown this week on the acclaimed series, Independent Lens.  The docmentary,  Dirt! The Movie "tells the story of Earth’s most valuable and underappreciated source of fertility — from its miraculous beginning to its tragic degradation." What could be more relevant to the study of agricultural law?
Floods, drought, climate change, and even war are all directly related to the fate of humble dirt. Made from the same elements as stars, plants, and human beings, dirt is very much alive. One teaspoon of dirt contains a billion organisms working in balance to sustain a series of complex, thriving communities that are invisibly a part of our daily lives. . . .This insightful and timely film tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet.
