Symphony of the Soil is a multi-film project that explores the world of soil, including how it is formed, its life cycle, human uses and misuses in agriculture, and soil’s role in addressing global environmental problems. The project consists of the feature film as well as several short films on topics like dry farming, composting, soil-water relationships, and carbon sequestration. Deborah Koons Garcia’s previous film, The Future of Food, was a documentary about genetically modified foods. It is credited with helping pass Mendocino County, California’s Measure H, which bans the planting of genetically engineered crops. Though Garcia is an accomplished filmmaker and runs her own production company, Lily Films, she is better known as the widow of Jerry Garcia, the legendary Grateful Dead lead singer and guitarist who died in 1995.
