Dirt simple

Did you know that 2015 has been declared “International Year of Soils”? It has—according to the UN anyway. And what better way to celebrate than with a special movie screening at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science (1801 Mountain NW)? Deborah Koons Garcia (the widow of Jerry Garcia, if that makes it more exciting for you) will be there on Saturday, April 11, from 7 to 9:30pm to screen a film she wrote, produced and directed. Symphony of the Soil is a 103-minute documentary drawing on “ancient knowledge and cutting-edge science” to explain how United States topsoil is degrading in quality and quantity, while cropland is eroding at a pace at least 10 times faster than it takes to replace it. Ms. Koons Garcia is a passionate environmentalist and filmmaker who also directed 2004’s The Future of Food. She will join audiences for a post-film question and discussion period. Admission to this event is $6 general admission, $5 museum members and $4 students. You can purchase tickets in advance at
