Program Description

Event Details

Stevenson Grange #121's 2021 “Critical Issues” film series, co-hosted with Stevenson Community Library, will feature discussions of documentaries. Each film will be discussed on a fourth Tuesday, starting at 6:30 pm.

This month, before the meeting, watch "Living Soil" on YouTube. Then on June 22, join the online discussion with fellow community members.

Over the next 40 years, the farming industry will have to produce more food than it has in the past 500 years. This challenge transcends the massive workload placed on farmers. It also speaks to the growing scarcity of our most crucial resource in farming - a healthy and thriving soil. Treat the soil right, and gorgeous crops will follow. But the rich biodiversity of our soil - the same elements we rely on for mass production - has undergone a profound depletion. Living Soil presents a wealth of information about the importance of soil, how it functions, and what we need to do to salvage its functionality for future generations.

This 60-minute documentary features innovative farmers and soil health experts from throughout the U.S. and is produced by the Soil Health Institute through the generous support of The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation.

To join this online program, you will need a computer, tablet or phone with a camera and microphone. The link to join the event will be emailed to registrants before the program begins.

A phone number will be included to allow you to use a phone as speaker and microphone, if necessary.
