Inspiring parents, teachers, business leaders, citizens and a new generation to deeply engage with the environment and their communities.

We educate existing and emerging leaders about the solutions that lie within the soil and train them to be influential advocates in their homes, communities, and in their businesses to drive structural change towards regeneration through grassroots action. We develop online and in-person courses and workshops to support your regenerative journey whether you are a student, parent, teacher, consumer, concerned citizen, or a business owner. 

Every Kiss the Ground course supports our mission of inspiring participation in soil regeneration. And each one is aimed at empowering YOU along your own individual journey, starting right where you are. Are you ready to realize the potential of your participation in the movement? Get ready to dive in. 

Become a Soil Advocate

We provide training, tools and support to those inspired by regenerative agriculture and healthy soils to become soil advocates. 

Learn how to share solutions to some of the biggest issues on our planet today.

We are so excited to share that we are opening up enrollment to our flagship course, Soil Advocate Training (SAT) with Finian Makepeace. Led by one of the Kiss the Ground co-founders and featuring experts including Mark HymanLeah Thomas, and Zach Bush, this course introduces a “new view” of soil regeneration, explains the principles of regenerative agriculture, shows students different advocacy pathways, and teaches students how to speak about and demonstrate these principles for different audiences.
 
This 8-module course includes lectures, interviews with industry leaders and experts, a curated list of readings and resources, a monthly webinar for graduates, and exclusive access to a Kiss the Ground slideshow for alumni to use in future presentations.

Scholarship Information

At Kiss the Ground, we believe that it takes every single one of us to get to regeneration. 

Education is one of the ways we believe we can break barriers that have disconnected us from nature. Providing scholarships for this education is our humble attempt to not only stand for soil but also stand for everyone who stands on it. We want to make our environmental and agricultural education available, accessible, and inclusive to all and hope that this increases the groups we are supporting in their study and influence on the future of Regenerative Agriculture.

We have created this Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship Fund to serve and support low income, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ students as well as students from developing countries. We consider applications based on an assessment of equity, need, and the resources we have available at the time of the request. All scholarship applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis and awarded until we have reached funding capacity.

Please note that our scholarship funding, provided both by donors and an internal commitment, is limited. If you need support, we urge you to apply! If you can pay for the class, please leave room for others in need and keep in mind that as a nonprofit, all of our funds go to furthering our mission and serving those in need. Scholarship applications for each course are opened to applicants starting from our course announcement, running through the end of the launch quarter, and then continually on a quarterly basis (Jan-Mar, Apr-June, July-Sept, Oct-Dec). Scholarships are funded on a rolling basis throughout their application period.

The amount of scholarship funds available has fluctuated over the years. But thanks to our incredible donors we have been able to provide scholarships without turning anyone away. In 2019 and 2020, we’ve offered scholarships in the range from 15% – 100% of the tuition amount.

If you would like to donate to the scholarship program or fund someone else please write [email protected].
