Sept. 20 column

Here's a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: Film puts power of soil on display. This one is about an amazing film called "Symphony of the Soil."

It is about the "skin of the Earth" (our soil), how it evolves, the different types, and the problems that are occurring from gardening and farming practices of tilling, using pesticides and not doing what we can to encourage a diverse population of microorganisms in our soils. The film is beautifully done and is well worth seeing. 

Here's the best part of all: you can see it for FREE! That's because the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County and several co-sponsors have covered the cost of the license for showing it to the public.

Refer to my blog calendar for the dates and times it will be shown this week. Don't miss this opportunity!
