Description

Kiss The Ground is a non-profit that exists to share 'The Soil Story', and to promote and implement the rebuilding of soils to improve human and planetary health.


Conventional Agriculture is . . .

#1 Cause of CO2  to the atmosphere
Conventional agricultural practices have moved 50-70 percent of carbon once stored in the soil into the atmosphere. This amounts to 65% of all CO2 added to atmosphere by humans.

#1 Reason soil water holding capacity is down 75%
Conventional agriculture has decreased the water holding capacity of the top soil by 75%. That means far more water is wasted, lost money for farmers, polluted water ways, and lack of water available for plants during droughts.

OUR Focus is to convert farmers to Regenerative Agriculture practices; Regenerative Agriculture is . . .

#1 Solution to removing carbon from the atmosphere
Rebuilding soils, using regenerative agricultural practices, like composting and inoculation of micro organisms, brings carbon from the atmosphere back into the soil.

#1 Solution for increasing soil’s water holding capacity
Rebuilding soils by adding compost (organic mater) increases the water holding capacity of soil. Reducing water needs by 30-75 percent. Adding 1% organic matter allows an acre of land to hold 17,500 more gallons of water.
