Launching RegenerateLA – Los Angeles’ New Strategy to Give Back to Mother Nature
RegenerateLA is a new program to reduce carbon in the atmosphere and sequester (store) it in the ground as compost.
The Essence of Regeneration
Amongst the numerous accolades and positive reviews the movie has received, there have been ongoing conversations about the lack of cultural representation in the film, specifically the Indigenous roots of regenerative practices. We are incredibly thankful to those who have taken the time to candidly share your insights. We view your feedback as a gift to ensure the evolution of this movement to regenerate soil, which in turn regenerates society.
Meet the Cast: Michael Martinez
Michael Martinez, the founder and executive director of LA Compost, whose work is also featured in KISS THE GROUND Movie, now streaming on Neflix. LA Compost is a group that educates Angelenos about turning food waste into a natural resource through workshops, after school programs, and events.
With Deep Gratitude
Like a diverse ecosystem, this moment is made possible from the collective hands, hearts and creative minds of each volunteer, staff member, advisor, funder, mentor, board member, student, friend, and family member.
Our Commitments
Our vision comes from our heart. Earth is thriving because humanity is in balance with all living systems. Reverence and interconnection are the foundation of our relationship with nature. Our participation in ecosystem regeneration is restoring the health of soil, water, the atmosphere, and communities. Humans have embraced their role as caretakers of the planet and each other.

Recordando la historia ancestral de la regeneración del suelo
En este capítulo conversamos con Karen Rodríguez, guatemalteca, criada en California, quien luego de aprender y trabajar con distintos actores del mundo de la comida, se acercó profundamente a la naturaleza, comprendiendo la importancia del origen de los alimentos y del suelo. Aquí nos cuenta sobre sus ancestros y tradiciones, las crisis socioambientales, el rol de la mujer en el movimiento regenerativo y su trabajo en la ONG Kiss The Ground, entre muchas otras cosas. Sin duda una historia que puede regenerar el mundo.
Kiss the Ground Premieres on Netflix, September 22nd
Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.
