'In this day and age healing our bodies means also that we are nourishing and healing the planet. I truly believe that the symptoms of our modern day technocratic society (Obesity, Cancer, Heart Disease, Depression and even Global Warming) are actually larger symptoms of disconnection.

Disconnection from the foods we consume, disconnection from our family and community and most importantly disconnection from the soil. One of the most important areas we need to look into when considering whole body health and creating a sustainable planet revolves around caring for the soil under our feet. If we truly nourish the soil we can create a sustainable way in which we interact with the planet and in turn produce highly mineralized and nutritious organic foods. It is these key areas of nutrition and food production education that we need so much of at this point in humanity.

We have made it our mission with the 'Food Matters' DVD and this website to help share this important information with you so that you may pass it along to the next generation and to those you love and care for. This is why we are excited to be bringing you 'Dirt The Movie'.

'Dirt' is a fantastic new film fresh on the scene after premiering at 'Sundance' in 2009. Inspired by William Bryant Logan's book "Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth", this film takes an investigative look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and will later return to. It is a winner of many film festival awards including "Best Green Documentary" and "Best Film for Our Future" and is high on our list of recommended documentaries.'

James Colquhoun
Producer, 'Food Matters' and 'Hungry For Change'

In this film you will witness:

  • Children uncovering the secrets of soil fertility and eating from edible schoolyards
  • Farmers and agronomists rediscovering sustainable food production
  • Small villages standing up for the right to feed their families
  • Scientists discovering connections with soil that can help reduce global warming
  • Inmates finding inner peace and job skills in a prison horticulture program

Why Dirt?

Dirt feeds us and gives us shelter. Dirt holds and cleans our water. Dirt heals us and makes us beautiful. Dirt regulates the earth's climate. Dirt is the ultimate natural resource for all life on earth. Yet most humans ignore, abuse, and destroy our most precious living natural resource. Consider the results of such behavior: mass starvation, drought, floods, global warming, and wars. If we continue on our current path, Dirt might find another use for humans, as compost for future life forms!

It doesn't have to be that way. Another world, in which we treat dirt with the respect it deserves, is possible and this DVD will show you how. The film offers a vision of a sustainable relationship between Humans and Dirt through profiles of the global visionaries who are determined to repair the damage we've done before it's too late. There are many ways we can preserve the living skin of the earth for future generations. If you care about your food, water, the air you breathe, your health and happiness... it's time you see DIRT! the Movie, roll up your sleeves for action and Get Dirty.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

  • 'I found this film to have a broad range of views on varying topics having to do with dirt: natural building, tree planting, edible schoolyards (and after watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, I am convinced that EVERY school needs a garden program!), mountaintop removal, mycology, energy, food, water, farming, composting, gardening....
    I have since seen this film NUMEROUS times and I highly recommend it. While it does touch on some serious topics, it is not a heavy documentary that requires a barf bag (thanks, Cove) or a prescription for Lexapro. It is informative, general, entertaining and inspiring. AND it has a great soundtrack from KCRW's highly acclaimed Tom Schnabel.'- Betty Black, Los Angeles CA
  • 'Fantastic Movie. Beautifully produced, shot and a well told story. Loved the animation. All the right people were interviewed. I aspire to produce a documentary as good as this.'- Sjhaymer
  • 'Eye-opening, inspiring. An excellent mix of humor, beautiful images, memorable subjects. The movie introduces the audience to DIRT in the broadest sense -- how it's alive and crucial to our existence. It's excitng to watch. Loved the sections about Rikers Island. This should be nominated for an Academy Award.'-Lindaluxe
  • 'Informational, Grim, uplifting. While not ignoring the cataclysmic environmental peril we face, the movie left the audience with a sense of conviction that some needs to be done and a sense of empowerment that even the smallest effort can contribute to the cause (we can all be hummingbirds dosing the fire together)-Caharbaugh
  • 'This was such an informative film I could see it several times to get all the details. I will definitely recommend it. I sure look at soil with even more respect that I did before. Thanks!'-Joanne W

I have a copy of the book, "Dirt, the ecstatic skin of the earth", and it is one my favourite books. If the movie is as good as the book, it must be brilliant.
As we are running out of oil, this century has to be the time when we learn how to allow the soil to work for us, instead of killing off its ecology with harsh chemicals. If we learn how to let the soil and the liquid carbon cycle remove excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, we will be a long way to solving the climate change problem. We need to learn fast. I recommend both the book "Dirt", the movie, and also recommend that people look up Dr. Christine Jones on the internet. She and other scientists who are at the cutting edge of soil biology (such as Dr. Elaine Ingham) is teaching farmers how to rebuild soil fertility and soil water-holding capacity. In the process, more nutrients presently unavailable to crops, are made available through the processes of biological farming. It is very exciting that at long last the news is spreading to more people that we can grow food without poisoning the Earth. It is also exciting that we are learning more and more about soil ecology. This is like the last frontier to explore.
