Forum editorial: ‘Symphony of Soil’ airs today in Fargo

‘Symphony of the Soil,” a film about a resource as basic to agriculture as water, will be aired at 7 p.m. today at the Fargo Theatre. Go see it.

Filmmaker Debora Garcia and North Dakota’s Fred Kirschenmann, “the father of sustainability,” are in Fargo to promote the film and talk about a future for agriculture that most North Dakotans do not yet see. In a meeting Monday with The Forum Editorial Board, they discussed the lore and value of the nation’s soil in a fascinating context that is the theme of the film.

It’s not just about farming and soil stewardship. It’s about producing healthy foods by sustainable methods – for a future they believe will be far different from today’s farming practices. At the very least, the film and the concepts it champions are food for thought.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for 12 and younger. Go see it – 7 p.m. today.
