With only 60 years of farmable soil left on Earth, The Need to Grow offers an intimate look into the hearts of activists and innovators in the food movement.
Follow an 8-year-old girl challenges the ethics of a beloved organization - a renegade farmer struggles to keep his land as he revolutionizes resource efficient agriculture - and an accomplished visionary investor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.
Narrated by Rosario Dawson (Marvel's The Defenders, The Lego Batman Movie), discover alarming evidence on the importance of healthy soil - revealing not only the potential of localized food production working with nature but our opportunity as individuals to help regenerate our planet's dying soils and participate in the restoration of the earth.

It has been de cussed about adding motorway tax . It would be my opinion . People would use alternative routes, which would clog those rds . car pooling seems to have died . An as far as public transport .Late buses due to car traffic . Having to catch several buses to go where you want to go . you still cant beet the convenience of private transport . houses buildings, need to be built where public transport can be incorporated . An more priority on train tracks then rds
