Film showing celebrates Earth Day

Dr. Tom Forge speaks about soil at Agassiz Earth Day event

Earth Day has been celebrated throughout North America since its founding in 1970. In 2014, Earth Day observances will be held in 192 countries with 22,000 partner groups participating.

In Agassiz, everyone is invited to watch Dirt! The Movie, a documentary film being shown on April 22, 7 p.m., at the Agassiz United Church.

Described as thought provoking, visually stunning, fun and accessible, the film tells the story of “soil”. It will raise awareness of the vital need to preserve and nurture the limited resource of arable land essential for sustaining the earth’s food supply.

Dr. Tom Forge PhD., Soil Scientist, will introduce the film and share his expertise on the issues raised in the movie.

A local musician, Samantha Taylor, will celebrate in song.

Refreshments are provided and admission is by donation.
