The Soil Story by Kiss The Ground

The Video

Science meets inspiration in this tale of nature’s best hidden innovation: soil.

The Soil Story, created by Kiss the Ground, is a five-minute film that shares the importance of healthy soil for a healthy planet. Learn how we can “sequester” (store) carbon from our atmosphere, where it is harmful, and pull it back into the earth, where it belongs, through regenerative agriculture, composting, and other land management practices.

Biochar: Putting carbon back where it belongs - Tony Lovell

Tony Lovell will explain the reasoning behind how more green growing plants means more captured carbon dioxide = more water = more production = more biodiversity = more profit. Did you know that a 1% change in soil organic matter across just one-quarter of the World's land area could sequester 300 billion tonnes of physical CO2.
