Kiss the Ground is a 501(c)3 environmental nonprofit based in Los Angeles, California. Since our founding, we have built a global community dedicated to addressing some of the largest challenges facing our world today through the regeneration of land and soil. Established in 2013 with a purpose of creating societal awareness about the extraordinary potential of soil, we have educated and inspired millions of people across the planet through our media and advocacy.

We continue to spread awareness through the creation of inspiring and engaging open-source content and resources about soil and regenerative agriculture. We are also heavily focused on making a tangible impact on the land and within our communities through our Farmland and Leadership Programs. 

Whether you are a business owner, parent, student, chef, farmer, rancher, policy maker or a concerned citizen, your participation in soil matters, and Kiss the Ground is dedicated to showing you what’s possible and providing the support to get there. Together, we can do this!

The Kiss the Ground Farmland Program funds training and soil testing that supports producers (farmers and ranchers) in transitioning landscapes and adopting management practices aligned with the principles of regenerative agriculture.

We educate existing and emerging leaders about the solutions that lie within the soil and train them to be influential advocates in their homes, communities, and in their businesses to drive structural change towards regeneration through grassroots action. We develop online and in-person courses and workshops to support your regenerative journey whether you are a student, parent, teacher, consumer, concerned citizen, or a business owner. 

We tell stories about how humanity can build healthy soil, reverse global warming and steward our planet through short films, campaigns, documentaries, books, social media, blogs, and public speaking.
