Kiss the Ground members are the grassroots stakeholders that stand with us in the regenerative movement.

While Lodi is known for its vineyards and orchards, the Nuss family is experimenting with regenerative farming techniques and growing annual vegetable specialty crops in the California delta.

How Regenerative Almonds are used in Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream
It’s truly inspiring to see the evolution of Fat Uncle Farms and to hope that more companies like Ben & Jerry’s will support transitioning their supply chain to a regenerative model that supports the land and the people indigenous to that land.
Be Love Farm
This month we’re featuring Be Love Farm in Vacaville, California, and Matthew Rose Stark, Be Love’s former Livestock and Orchard Manager.
Brook Williams — the owner of Duravita Vineyard located in coastal Lompoc, CA — has worked in wineries since 1989, and decided to try life on the other side of the wine cellar – “in the dirt,” as he says – when he and his siblings bought the Duvarita property in 2012.
The 7 R’s of Regeneration
“As an alumni soil advocate from Kiss the Ground, it inspired me to write my book, @regenerateyourreality and continue expanding the @JungleProjectCR mission all about Trees, Training, and Trade. I have felt called to environmentalism since a young age. In 2017, I moved to Costa Rica to follow my passion for nature, permaculture, agroforestry, and community. Now I am teaching soil advocacy to children and activated a monthly webinar series about regeneration in every – way. I believe we can be part of the solution to the climate crisis, and that we all can play our part by living regeneration and coming back to our essence of love.” –
