To find out what is taking its place, this feature documentary follows six people in one community who have recast their lives so they can live with a sense of meaning.<br /> <br /> Experts offer insights and discoveries about what creates a sense of well-being, as new research from such diverse fields as Neuroscience, Environmental Studies, Economics, Positive Psychology and Yoga point the way in a surprisingly different direction. A New American Dream -- one based on compassion, community and connection -- turns out to be “A Small Good Thing”.

It makes you care about our Earth’s precious skin, so rare among planets.”<br /> – Washington Post<br /> <br /> “True to its title, the film really makes a symphony of soil…”<br /> – Civil Eats<br /> <br /> Drawing from ancient knowledge and cutting edge science, Symphony of the Soil is an artistic exploration of the miraculous substance soil. By understanding the elaborate relationships and mutuality between soil, water, the atmosphere, plants and animals, we come to appreciate the complex and dynamic nature of this precious resource. The film also examines our human relationship with soil, the use and misuse of soil in agriculture, deforestation and development, and the latest scientific research on soil’s key role in ameliorating the most challenging environmental issues of our time. Filmed on four continents, featuring esteemed scientists and working farmers and ranchers, Symphony of the Soil is an intriguing presentation that highlights possibilities of healthy soil creating healthy plants creating healthy humans living on a healthy planet.<br /> <br /> Produced and Directed by Deborah Koons Garcia<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.symphonyofthesoil.com">http://www.symphonyofthesoil.com</a><br /> <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2229399/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2229399/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1</a> Cooked - Official Trailer - Netflix [HD] tag:concordfood.ning.com,2016-03-14:4942197:Video:21804 2016-03-14T02:21:07.408Z Concord Food Network http://concordfood.ning.com/profile/FoodforThoughtAdministrator <a href="http://concordfood.ning.com/video/cooked-official-trailer-netflix-hd"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/dOkmBfdf6MsHry*FLEp09QFwJ*Y*v8qBoPwAYGhVmduLrlJpQwOGiWFkmXvHZH1MAgPU*YxukdAIfpi7ACcuXVgo6OFp9KoK/1186493895.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Explored through the lenses of the four natural elements – fire, water, air and earth – Cooked is an enlightening and compelling look at the evolution of what food means to us through the history of food preparation and its universal ability to connect us.
