Dirt-y film educates residents about soil
June 1, 2010
Conservation officials will dig deep for the next showing in the city Sustainability Film Series.
“Dirt! The Movie” will be the feature when the series returns June 8. The documentary — pardon the pun — sifts through a valuable and underappreciated source of fertility: soil.
The film examines the environmental, economic, social and political impact of dirt through stories from experts around the globe.
Following the film, a panel of experts will lead a discussion about dirt and what residents can do in their yards to keep soil healthy and toxin-free. Free information and refreshments will be available; door prizes will be awarded after the film.
The free event runs from 6:30-9 p.m. June 8 at the King County Library Service Center, 960 Newport Way N.W.
The city Resource Conservation Office presents the Sustainability Film Series through a grant from the King County Local Hazardous Waste Management Program. Call the Recourse Conservation Office at 837-3400 to learn more.
