The Need to Grow

Run Time: 120 min.

This program is part of the 2020 Environmental Film Series presented by Bedford 2020, Weeden Foundation and Bedford Playhouse. Guests are invited to come together after the film for topical conversation in the Playhouse café.

The Need To GROW follows three pioneers of cutting edge technology in a race against the end of farmable soil as they fight for change in the industry of agricultural food production, localizing sustainable food systems and regenerating Earth’s dying soils.

The film 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.

 This presentation is co-hosted by the Bedford Garden Club, Hopp Ground Garden Club and Rusticus Garden Club.
