“Focus on Nature 2013”

Opening Night at the Jacob Burns Center! Deborah Koons Garcia’s magnum opus on the extraordinarily complex web of life that exists in soil. Anything but ordinary, a handful of typical garden soil contains billions of organisms that interact in complex ways with water, atmosphere, plants, animals, and each other, underpinning the cycle of life. With fascinating contemporary thought and ancient knowledge from around the world, Garcia guides us to a new level of appreciation for this most essential resource.

Q&A and RECEPTION: Dan Barber, who appears in the film, is executive chef and co-owner of the restaurants Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns. He is a nationally known writer and speaker, working to bring the principles of good farming to the table. Producer/Director Deborah Koons Garcia last visited the JBFC with her 2004 feature, The Future of Food. Moderated by JBFC Executive Director Steve Apkon.

Join us after the program for a reception featuring food sourced from popular vendors from the Pleasantville Farmers Market. Wine generously donated by Wine Enthusiast.
