“The Need To Grow” – Movie Screening
and Q&A with Ag Inventor Michael Smith

Friday, Feb 7th at 6:30pm at UHMC – Kalama 103

Genius inventor Michael Smith (CEO Regentech), the star of this documentary is visiting Maui and UHMC is happy to host him for this movie evening. He has figured out how to do something in 4-5 days that takes nature 400 years to do… and it’s something that farmers and gardeners have been hoping for: His Green Power House transforms wood waste into biochar, electricity, fertilizer, biogas and more, helping to grow healthier soils and combat climate change. His REGENiSYS® Biostimulants activate phenomenal plant growth.
You’ve probably been hearing all the buzz about healthy soil lately. Healthy dirt turns out to be the key to save water, grow nutrient dense foods, reduce toxic chemical exposure, rebuild ecosystems, and even reverse climate change.
This emotional, surprising, award-winning film introduces you to three solution innovators – Michael Smith the inventor, a farmer, and an 8-year-old girl – who are working on ways to regenerate soils and heal our food system. Their stories have never been more beautifully told.
The Need to Grow is the story of resilience, hope, and innovation that the world needs right now.
It’s wonderfully narrated by actress / activist Rosario Dawson and brings together solutions for seed saving, composting, urban agriculture, activism, and Michael Smith’s high tech invention that could forever change ecosystem restoration on this planet.
This a great movie you don’t want to miss… and fun for the whole family. (TheNeedToGrow.com)
Michael Smith will have a Q & A session after the movie and is available to meet with interested people. (to connect please email chris@mentzel.com)
