There will be  a free showing of the new documentary "Symphony of the Soil,” Wednesday Oct. 9, at 7 p.m. at the Sebastopol Grange. Sebastopol farmer Paul Kaiser, who appears in the film, will introduce it and answer questions, as will a representative of the film-maker, Deborah Koons Garcia, who also made the award-winning "Future of Food."

Kaiser who has Singing Frogs Farm practices non-till agriculture, using compost and hedgerows to avoid breaking soil and encourage pollinators.
