This movie is a powerful message on the urgent issues around soil. The loss of topsoil has been called the single greatest threat to life on earth. Life without soil paints a dim existence for mankind.
The National Academy of Sciences has determined that cropland in the U.S. is being eroded at least 10 times faster than the time it takes for lost soil to be replaced. The United Nations has warned of worldwide soil degradation.
“We’re losing more and more of it every day. The estimate is that we are now losing about 1 percent of our topsoil every year to erosion, most of this caused by agriculture.”
David Montgomery, geologist at the University of Washington
Please watch a preview of this film if you are concerned about your future:
North Florida Farms is focused on rebuilding topsoil by restoring living organisms to the dirt. Our agricultural system also provides a powerful alternative to clear cutting forests for farming, the need for mass amounts of land for agriculture, and machinery tilling. These are all activities which are known to be the leading causes of topsoil loss.
