KTG PARTNER COURSES: PROGRAMS HOSTED BY TRUSTED ORGANIZATIONS IN THE MOVEMENT
Like KTG’s own courses, these carefully selected partner courses support the education of farmers, gardeners, consumers, policymakers, and businesses about regenerative agriculture and practices. They equip people with the skills and knowledge needed to be a stronger activist, better consumer, regenerative gardener, or regenerative farmer.
Kiss the Ground has always worked in collaboration with many different groups and thought leaders, and we are always looking to partner with new and existing leaders in the movement. We choose partners who, like Kiss the Ground, support the system restoration of our planet and lead us all to get into action to regenerate our planet.
Our partner courses are geared towards a diverse audience and cover a variety of topics, but are united by our strongest belief: anyone, anywhere, can be a powerful and impactful advocate.
All of the courses fall under one of our four regenerative pillars:
FARMING ● LIFESTYLE ● ACTIVISM ● BUSINESS
REGEN AG 101
The Regen Ag 101 online course is designed to be a self-paced, interactive media experience, chock-full of video lectures, case studies, and supporting research gleaned from the very best of Soil Health Academy live workshops across the U.S.
The course consists of 10 documentary instruction modules featuring Ray Archuleta, Gabe Brown, Shane New, and Dr. Allen Williams teaching the core principles of regenerative agriculture that they have pioneered over the past 30 years.

TRANSITION TO CERTIFIED ORGANIC AGRICULTURE
One of the most important practices in regenerative agriculture is context. Everyone and every piece of land are on different parts of the journey. We are excited for this course to help those ready to transition to ORGANIC!
There are many reasons for making the move to become certified organic. Some of them may be personal, and some are financial or economic reasons, as the marketplace continues to reward those who become certified. Whatever your reason, this course will provide some help as we bring together Rodale Institute researchers, other experts and farmers to share with you information and help you transition to organic certification.
What is “certified organic?” What does it cost, and what’s the benefit? How do I know if I’m doing it right? If you’ve ever asked any of these questions, Rodale Institute’s Transition to Certified Organic Agriculture course is for you!
