June Climate Movie Circle: “Kiss the Ground”
The Climate Movie Circle is proud to present our June film selection, “Kiss the Ground.” Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis. By regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. The film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle. This movie is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible – to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species’ future.
From the trailer: Woody says “I’ll make you a deal: I won’t give up and you shouldn’t either.” Take it from us, this is an inspiring and hopeful film that could not be more relevant to us here in Yolo County!
This FREE screening with popcorn and optional follow up discussion will be held in-person Sunday, June 11, from 1:30pm to 3:00pm with an optional follow up discussion until 4:00pm at the Blanchard Room of the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Yolo County Library at 315 E. 14th Street, Davis, CA.

More about “Kiss the Ground” and regenerative agriculture
Over the past 10 years, Kiss the Ground, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit, has become a leading voice in raising awareness for regeneration through storytelling, education, and advocacy. They believe regenerative agriculture is a viable solution to combat the climate, water, and health crisis. Their mission is to awaken people to the possibilities of regeneration – a solution for the climate, water, and health crisis. They believe regenerative agriculture is one of the greatest tools and opportunities to combat the climate, water, and health crisis.
The heartbeat of the regenerative movement is rooted in its stories. These narratives are carried across generations of farmers, ranchers, indigenous communities, and stewards of the earth. The folks at Kiss the Ground are lucky enough to listen to these stories humbly, tie them together, and express them through mixed-media – photos, written + spoken word, short films, premium films, and more – to help bring connection and awareness to the power and possibilities of regeneration to combat our climate, water, and health crises.
One of the most powerful tools in the regenerative movement is education. Through on-demand courses, brand packages, public speaking engagements, and free resources, we offer several pathways for people to learn and grow in this movement. From seasoned farmers wanting to implement regenerative practices to businesses looking to educate their teams, or folks simply interested in advocating for regeneration, there is something for everyone to get started now. Reach out to learn about opportunities to deepen your knowledge of the regenerative movement and become an advocate today! Learn more about Kiss the Ground Education.
The Kiss the Ground advocacy team is the megaphone of the organization, thoughtfully bringing important priorities surrounding regenerative agriculture to the policy level and advocating for a regenerative future. Through a dynamic platform, Regenerate America™, they work with a coalition of farmers, ranchers, businesses, and nonprofits from across the US to elevate important voices in agriculture, demanding that US policies shift resources & support toward regenerative agriculture.
