Join The Wild Center, the Youth Climate Program, and ADK Action’s Compost for Good Project for a free virtual screening of Kiss the Ground with a Q&A to follow.

Right now, soil might be the last thing on your mind. But in a moment when the future of our planet and humankind is at stake, nothing may be more important than regenerating the ground beneath us. We’re in need of a kind of hope we’ve never felt before. KISS THE GROUND, now out on Netflix, unveils a game-changer to our climate crisis: the Earth’s own soil. 

We’re facing a lot of challenges right now — this film is creating a movement to solve one of our greatest challenges: balancing the climate and securing our future.
How about some good news for a change? Here it is: we can reverse global warming. The solution is called “Regenerative Agriculture” and this film presents the research, practice, and hope we need to move forward. Together.

Regenerative Agriculture can: Revive farmer prosperity, reduce flooding & draught, replenish fresh water sources, reduce fire hazards, reverse global warming, recreate regional access to nutrient-dense food, reduce toxic pesticides & fertilizers, reduce dead zones & water pollution, reverse extinction, and reconnect humanity & nature.

Note: Please only register one ticket per screen being used. (i.e. if you are in a household with three people who will all share one screen to participate in the program just reserve one ticket.)
