Let’s Get Dirty!


Written by Plant With Purpose on November 17, 2010 in General

Plant With Purpose staff literally dished the dirt yesterday at Tuesday Training by watching DIRT! The Movie and indulging in cups of good ol’ dirt ‘n worms.

We’re only halfway through the movie, but we’re already learning (and being reminded of) the important relationship between humans and living dirt.

As DIRT! The Movie’s website says, “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.”

Plant With Purpose partners with rural communities around the globe to repair and preserve the dirt on which their (and our) survival depends by teaching farmers to adopt planting and harvesting methods that conserve the soil and improve crop yields.

Check out the DIRT! The Movie trailer below and tune in next week as we dig up some more info on dirt.
