Soil – the First Viable Solution to Our Climate Crisis
We live in a world on the cusp that might be past the point of redemption: climate change progressing, our fragile food system under strain, and our planet becoming uninhabitable for our future generations. Luckily, Kiss the Ground, a champion for regenerative living and the restoration of soil worldwide, has taken up the torch, stirring our collective conscience to action – and quite simply but extremely firmly, our lives depend on it. The Los Angeles-based non-profit organization aims to raise awareness of “humanity’s greatest challenges” and their almost-too-simple solution: the very ground beneath our feet.
The non-profit has inspired filmmaker and author Josh Tickell to produce both a book and a documentary of the same name (the documentary was directed by Josh and Rebecca Tickell), and the organization’s website boasts an even more expansive array of tools with which to accomplish their mission, including free educational resources and a podcast. With their farmland and stewardship programs, advocate training, and community collaboration, the regenerative agriculture movement has been gaining momentum. Above all, Kiss the Ground is a way of life. It’s a pathway towards a fervent community dedicated to healing our planet.
Seven years in the making, their star-studded, eponymous documentary, narrated by Woody Harrelson, hit Netflix in September, and it’s already generated quite a buzz. The optimistic climate documentary, with a diverse team of activists, educators, celebrities, and community leaders, has motivated viewers to take matters into their own hands and get involved in the growing global movement. Although the film tackles the ominous subject of global warming and illustrates the harmful dangers of destructive farming practices, Kiss the Ground possesses the rare ability to inspire hope, communicating its message with a sense of positivity and a glimmer of possibility.
