May Movie Night for compost month – Dirt!

For Compost month Transition Town Guildford will be teaming up with other Transition groups around Perth to screen the movie Dirt!

“Dirt! The Movie is an insightful and timely film that tells the story of the glorious and unappreciated material beneath our feet.

Inspired by William Bryant Logan’s acclaimed book Dirt: The Ecstatic Skin of the Earth, Dirt! The Movie takes a humorous and substantial look into the history and current state of the living organic matter that we come from and will later return to. Dirt! The Movie will make you want to get dirty!” – IMDB rating 7.2/10

As usual, the second Tuesday of the month – Tuesday 13th May

@The Stirling Arms Hotel, 117 James street, Guildford

6 pm onwards for food and drinks, 7 pm Movie, 8:30 pm finish
