For many, the fires raging across the West have brought home not only the realities of climate change—but the urgent need to restore the land. For this reason, the filmmakers behind the new documentary, Kiss the Ground, released globally on Netflix today, are hoping that the burgeoning movement to restore soil health will give their audience a reason to hope.
60 years. That’s about how long we have until the world’s remain topsoil is gone. “What we’re looking at is man-made desertification,” said Josh Tickell in his recent keynote speech at Driving Value Through Sustainability Across the Supply Chain. There’s hope, though. Kiss the Ground, the documentary directed and produced by Josh and Rebecca Tickell, with Julian Lennon and Ian Somerhalder as Executive Producers, explores how this crisis can be reversed, explaining that when we regenerate the world’s soils we can stabilize the Earth’s climate, restore local ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies.
To significantly mitigate the climate crisis, there are a lot of problems humans need to solve — and as the new Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground suggests, one of the biggest problems is right under your feet: the soil. Narrated by Woody Harrelson and featuring music from your favorite avocado farmer Jason Mraz, the star-studded film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, while simultaneously invigorating a new sense of hope and inspiration in viewers.
