Film Screening: The Need to Grow

Film Screening: The Need to Grow

Save the soil – save the world? Could the fight against climate change be won by working with nature and regenerating our depleted soils?


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 who are fighting to create localised & sustainable food systems and regenerate our soil.

We follow an 8-year-old girl as she challenges the ethics of a beloved organisation – a renegade farmer who struggles to keep his land as he revolutionises resource efficient agriculture – and an accomplished visionary investor as he 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 localised 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.

We are very lucky in Charlton Kings to have beautiful countryside on our doorstep, with a wonderful variety of different habitats, from grassland and woodland to rivers and ponds. But we know that globally and locally, biodiversity is declining and our wildlife is threatened.

That is why we want to focus on what we can do as a Parish Council, as a community, and as individuals, to protect the habitats in Charlton Kings, improve the biodiversity and wildlife-friendliness of our gardens and green spaces, and create opportunities for people to connect with the nature that surrounds us.

We have lots of talks, workshops and events planned over the next few months.
