WHAT IS ADVANCED REGENERATIVE GARDENING?

Regenerative Gardening puts an emphasis on soil health – making the priority of your garden on improving the soil by using different regenerative techniques. By increasing the biology of your soil, this allows your garden to thrive in many ways on its own with water and pest management. If you have found yourself becoming more interested in the connections between growing your own food and planet health, or have gotten swept up in the excitement of seed varieties and the possibilities of contributing to local food sovereignty, or simply feel ready to take your gardening to the next level – this course is for you!

This advanced garden course will build on your fundamental gardening knowledge by connecting you to in-depth understandings of life cycles, plant nutrients, soil importance, troubleshooting, and land ethics all while practicing new skills for impactful gardening.

Connect and Learn with Communtity

Our journey to regeneration began first and foremost with community. The idea for Kiss the Ground was born in our cofounder’s living room, where various people with different skills – all united in their passion for this movement – met every Monday to try to problem solve. We understand the power of coming together.

Kiss the Ground’s Online Community on Mighty Networks will connect you with other students and activists in the Regenerative Movement, and keep you informed about the latest courses, projects, news and events at Kiss the Ground!
