This film travels sites around the world where the use of integrated approaches to land management has resulted in dramatic revitalization of degraded agricultural land. This inspirational film interviews leading scientists and features success stories from farmers and ranchers in Zimbabwe, Australia, Mexico and the U.S. They illustrate how the successful carbon sequestration in top soil and other approaches will not only curb the gases that cause global warming, but increase biodiversity, lessen the use of fertilizers and pesticides and create effective rainfall within just a couple of years.

Special guest: Sallie Calhoun from Paicines Ranch, local grass-fed beef producer and chair of Holistic Management International
