dirt!

watched dirt!, which emphasized that all life comes from–and depends on still–dirt. ‘we are dirt.’ in fact, there’s a winemaker in california who tastes the dirt that grows the grapes that makes the wine. what happens when you break that connection between root and leaf, between land and people, between field and fork? you break that which is most primal, personal, spiritual. as the film points out, war follows, and crime, destitution, hopelessness. what happens when you preserve or restore that connection? so food is not just a matter of feeding your belly. in my home town, the community gardens feed the hungry, they give hope, they teach, they experiment and grow and nourish, as life has been doing for millions of years.
