    Excellent film!! Thanks for sharing. The future of nutritious agricultural food is ALL about soil regeneration and sustainability. The technological invention highlighted in this film is amazing, doing in 4 days what it would take nature 400 yrs. Of course, global manufacturers of fertilizers & pesticides will fight to squash the technology to preserve their $170 Billion in annual sales. Again, very inspiring film, and I love that young children are featured because it's truly about their future!! Oh, I joined the Food Revolution Network so I can stay abreast of what's going on.

    I would dearly love to watch this film, especially given the fantastic productivity of my two gardens this summer. But watching the trailer, I can see that it's hopeless. Without subtitles, I miss most of the dialogue. It's just too frustrating, trying to sit there and make sense of what I can't hear.

    Islander, you're in luck!! The actual film contains subtitles. Beneath the trailer, there's a "sign up" for FREE. Once you enter your first name and your email address, you'll be given access to the 90 minute film. In the lower right hand corner next to the volume control is a CC option. Click on it and select your preference and subtitles will appear on the film. Enjoy!!

    Thanks to Mr. Wizard for informing me and to Julieanne for alerting me to the deadline. I had to watch last night's debate among the candidates for Maine's Senate seat, but I'll try to set aside time to see it tonight.

    The film makes crystal clear that fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, etc. are harmful to soil. Soil is a living organism. The more organic matter, microbial life, and minerals the soil carries, the higher the micronutrients will be in the food grown from it.

    I'm having trouble trying to access this video, "404 - We couldn't find the page you're looking for!" Anyone else???

    PS:
    I entered the URL into the IP address bar and got around the "404" alert, however I still can't actuate the video, perhaps the website is overloaded and/or it takes a very long time to download???

    Well here is a link to the film, but I don't know whether it will work for you. You need to have claimed your place and registered to view and there may have been a deadline for that.
    https://grow.foodrevolution.org/screening/

    Or try this:
    Only two days left in your exclusive free screening of The Need To GROW. If you haven’t seen it all yet, this is your time!
