The Kiss the Ground Podcast is one of the ways we share our mission to awaken people to the possibilities of regeneration. We use our voice and platform to uplift and engage with individuals and organizations by sharing their hopeful perspectives and stories about how we can heal and regenerate our earth and ourselves, as we are one and the same. The weekly conversations, hosted by Ryland Engelhart, feature guests ranging from farmers and founders to doctors and activists, but are united in their authentic and heartfelt content.

*The hour-long episodes can be found on all major podcast distributors.

Ryland is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Kiss the Ground, and a producer of Kiss The Ground (the film) on Netflix. He has spent the past 15 years as an entrepreneur and love-activist, working in hospitality and building a “triple bottom line” business of organic plant-based restaurants called Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre in Southern CA. He is also a co-creator of the award-winning, inspirational documentary film called “May I Be Frank.” Ryland has an infectious passion for life and is a cultural catalyst creating transformation through his own organizations and in the world at large. He publicly speaks on the topics of sacred commerce, gratitude, veganism, building community, regeneration and the connection between soil health, human health, and planetary health. Ryland is also a husband and father and lives on a 17-acre regenerative organic farm in Fillmore, CA where he learns to practice what he preaches.


The essence of the work of Kiss the Ground is this deep reverence for life. A conversation about ecology, soil, trees, and all the layers of the biology and living things that contribute to our existence. Interconnection and love of the world.
