Sunday 17 November 2019 7.30pm: A film Screening of “The Need to Grow”

In November, we will be screening “The Need to Grow” – an award-winning documentary from 2018, directed by Rob Herring and Ryan Wirick, and narrated by Rosario Dawson. The publicity notes that the documentary “delivers alarming evidence on the importance of healthy soil — revealing not only the potential of localized food production working with nature, but our opportunity as individuals to help regenerate our planet’s dying soils and participate in the restoration of the Earth”. We will be truncating the film slightly to fit it into our usual meeting time, and to allow space for discussion afterwards.

The film offers a timely reminder, in view of the rewilding movement and National Park City movement that the most effective and efficient solutions to our problems can involve working with Nature rather than against it.
