In the Roots documentary, journalist Pierre Girard meets two farmers whose practices have helped put more carbon into the earth to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Félix Noblia in the Basque Country has designed a grazing system that actively stores carbon in the soil. Fabrice Desjours from Burgundy combines forgotten herbs, trees and plants to create forest gardens which are both lush and edible.
The amount of carbon stored in the soil could be greatly increased if only 0.4 percent of it was added each year, but this is where agriculture comes into play. By implementing farming practices that are beneficial to the environment, like those seen on Roots, we can make a real difference to our planet’s future.
Roots is an eye-opening documentary that showcases just how important it is for us to do our part when it comes to tackling climate change. It follows two farmers who are dedicated to creating a greener future and details how their sustainable practices have benefited both their land and communities. If you’re looking for an inspiring story about why sustainability matters, then Roots is the perfect watch!
