There are only 60 years of farmable soil left on the planet! The Need To GROW is about low and high tech SOLUTIONS to regenerate our dying soil and localize our food supply. If climate change is the issue of our time, shouldn't we be talking about the only way to reverse our carbon emissions? That's with healthy soil.
After 3 years of filming, we now need the support of the community. Our Kickstarter just went LIVE less than 24 hours ago, and we were already selected by Kickstarter as a "PROJECT WE LOVE"! SupportTheNeedToGROW
This is the most dire environmental issue that almost no one knows about, yet has the greatest potential for positive change on our ecosystems! Hope you can watch our video!
