Kiss the Ground Welcomes Captain Planet Foundation - Parents, Educators, and All Ages Welcome
Kiss the Ground’s Jessica Handy and Karen Rodriguez host Courtney Kimmel, Vice President of Captain Planet Foundation. Captain Planet Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded almost thirty years ago based on the animated series Captain Planet and the Planeteers, with the mission of collaboratively engaging and empowering young people to be problem-solvers for the planet. Project Hero is a critical part of that mission, offering educators a tool to catalyze empathy into action on behalf of species and ecosystems that need help. Tune in for exciting updates in our Youth Based Soil Education Resources as well as the launch of our Soil Quest Curriculum, sponsored by Whole Foods, Sierra Club, BioBag and Artemis Rising Foundation.

This free middle school curriculum that we developed in partnership with Life Lab is designed to introduce young people to the magic of soil and the fascinating connection it has to the food we eat, our health and our climate. The 5-lesson curriculum, written to serve as supplemental material for the Next Generation Science Standards, teaches about the carbon cycle, photosynthesis, soil science, various agricultural practices, and concludes with a regenerative soil-based project.
