KISS THE GROUND is a new documentary that explores the first viable, low-cost way to reverse climate change through (drum roll)… Soil. When cared for properly, soil (a.k.a. “dirt”) has the potential to sequester 100% of the carbon dioxide that humans have emitted into the atmosphere. There’s only one catch: our modern, industrialized, monocrop-based agriculture is killing the microbial life in the soil that does the carbon sequestering (“biosequestration”). But there’s hope. A disruptive group of scientists, farmers, ranchers, activists, and government types are banding together in a global movement toward a new type of agriculture called “regenerative farming” that increases soil life, stores water and sequesters CO2. These people come from diverse backgrounds, but they share a common commitment – to heal the world’s soils before it’s too late. KISS THE GROUND is their story and the story of a powerful solution to one of humanity’s greatest challenges.
