New Documentary: Soil is More than Dirt



Healthy soil is one of Ireland’s most valuable resources. In July 2015, an important conference to mark the UN Year of Soil was held in Claregalway Castle to present the latest scientific thinking on good soil management, along with real-life reports from local Irish growers. This documentary by Cleo deVito tells us about the nature and composition of soil and its importance to our daily lives and reports on the conference. Farmers, gardeners and friends of the environment will find this packed with fascinating facts about the ground we walk on.

Soil is More Than Dirt will be broadcast:

  • Sun, May 1st at 2 pm
  • Thurs. 5 May, at 11 am

This one-hour programme was funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee, in the context of the Sound & Vision scheme.
