Description

Documentary screening and expert panel discussion

WHEN: Sunday, October 4th 1:00 – 4:00 pm

Soilutions and the City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center invite you to dig into the vibrant and vital world underground and be amazed.

Soil not only fuels our food, but it also cleans our water, and sequesters our ever-increasing levels of carbon.

Sunday’s event starts with a screening of "Symphony of the Soil" by Deborah Koons Garcia, and continues with a lively panel discussion led by local soil experts. Panelists include: Jim Brooks, Michael Reed, Joanie Quinn, Steve Glass and Lorenzo Candelaria. Join in as we discuss the importance of healthy soil, our personal connection to it, and what we can do to protect this valuable and diminishing resource.”

To keep up with global food demand, the UN estimates, 6 million hectares (14.8 million acres) of new farmland will be needed every year. Tragically, 12 million hectares a year are instead lost through soil degradation.

This event is one in a series related to the Visitor Center’s exhibit featuring another diminishing resource—water.

PARCH: an Art Exhibit compiles the work of six talented, local artists and hangs in our gallery from October 3rd to December 27th.

The Open Space Visitor Center is located at 6500 Coors Boulevard, between Montaño Road and Paseo del Norte at the end of Bosque Meadows Road. Look for the Flyway art installation.
