Banyen's Description: 

From Josh Tickell, a celebrated documentary filmmaker, comes “a fascinating, easy-to-follow blueprint for how eating in ways that nourish and regenerate the soil can not only help reverse global warming, but also bring greater vitality to our lives.” (Wolfgang Puck).

It turns out that for all our gadgetry we are still bound by the same contract as our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Soil gives food and in so doing soil gives life. Earth is our home and without the substance we call earth, we cannot survive.
 

This is why we humans will tell this same story in some form or another over and over again. It’s why we show our children how to garden and how to farm. And it’s why they show us how to eat dirt. Us and soil—it is a time-tested relationship…


The ground, otherwise known as the soil, is our home. No matter where we go, or how far we venture, or how long we live, we will always return home. And because of this, and because of the discoveries in these pages, I have great hope.

“A must read for anyone committed to healing our bodies and our Earth” (Deepak Chopra), Kiss the Ground explains an incredible truth: by changing our diets to a soil-nourishing, regenerative agriculture diet, we can reverse global warming, harvest healthy, abundant food, and eliminate the poisonous substances that are harming our children, pets, bodies, and ultimately our planet.

This richly visual look at the impact of an underappreciated but essential resource—the very ground that feeds us—features fascinating and accessible interviews with celebrity chefs, ranchers, farmers, and top scientists. Kiss the Ground teaches you how to become an agent in humanity’s single most important and time-sensitive mission: reverse climate change and effectively save the world—all through the choices you make in how and what to eat. Also a full-length documentary executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio and narrated by Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground both informs and inspires with compelling storytelling, and you-are-there explorations of our human being-with soil, plants, food, garbage, and compost—the huge mystery that makes our life possible. As someone said, “History celebrates the fields whereon we meet our death, but rarely speaks of the plowed fields whereby we live.”
