Join in this exclusive free screening of Rosario Dawson’s award-winning documentary that many are calling the environmental film the world has been waiting for. With the planet on the brink of ecological disaster, and chronic disease rates skyrocketing, this is a story of real-world SOLUTIONS.
It will warm your heart, fill you with hope, and inspire you to take action.
The United Nations estimates that at the rate we are depleting our farmland, we have fewer than 60 years of soil left on Earth.
Can we feed the world without destroying the planet?
The answer depends on what we do now!
The good news is, there ARE solutions. The Need To Grow takes you inside the hearts and innovations of three very different leaders – 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 inventor faces catastrophe in the midst of developing a game-changing technology.
Narrated by Rosario Dawson, The Need To Grow delivers an epic story of solutions and the struggles to implement them. It will make you laugh, make you cry, give you chills, and inspire you to participate in the restoration of the Earth.
