Just in Time for Earth Day, PBS Gets DIRT! The Movie


If you missed the premiere screening of DIRT! on PBS this Tuesday, local stations will air the hour-long documentary again on Sunday and Monday. The movie, narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis, examines the effects of industrial farming on our soils and offers ways to reverse these effects. It features the likes of locavoric high priestess Alice Waters preaching the principles of her Edible Schoolyard program, and wine guy Gary Vaynerchuck licking the ground in a vineyard. Happy Earth Day, indeed.
