Product description

Review

Kiss the Ground gives us the most practical solution to reversing climate change. The soil is a vital and untapped resource. A must read for anyone committed to healing our bodies and our Earth.” -- Deepak Chopra

“Through my life as a chef, one of the most important lessons I have learned is that we have to take care of our Earth, or it won’t be able to go on taking care of us.  Every one of us―farmers and chefs, parents and children, business people and world leaders―must play a part in keeping our planet healthy so that it can go on keeping us healthy.  That’s why I’m so happy to discover Kiss the Ground, which offers 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

Kiss the Ground is a powerful, provocative new look at how we can all participate in honoring Mother Earth. Our food is the source of our life and the soil is the source of our food. This book shows the simple steps each one of us can take to restore the health of our bodies and our planet.” -- Woody Harrelson

“Food, soil, even eating itself…all are fundamental issues in the effort to live a more enlightened life. Kiss the Ground both informs and inspires, as it connects biology and geography and species diversity to the yearnings of the human heart.” -- Marianne Williamson, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“Our food choices not only impact our personal health, but the health of the world we all live in. Kiss the Ground is the first book to connect our health to what is going on in the atmosphere. If you care about your kids, about the food you’re feeding them and about the future of the planet, you need to read this book.” -- Vani Hari, New York Times bestselling author and creator of FoodBabe.com

Kiss the Ground paints a hopeful yet achievable picture of a way of growing food that makes our soil healthier, makes us healthier, and ultimately could make our climate healthier too. As somebody who’s thrown his hat into the new ‘regenerative movement’ I recommend this book to anyone wanting to heal themselves and our planet.” -- Kimbal Musk, co-founder of The Kitchen

“The book Kiss the Ground shines a beacon of light on the growing global 'regenerative agriculture’ movement, illuminating a new path toward carbon sequestration and hopefully, a path toward a balanced climate. With clear, accessible language, wit and humor, this book gives readers powerful tools to overcome humanity’s greatest challenge." -- Terry Tannimen, CEO of Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and former Secretary of the California EPA

“Kiss the Ground re-imagines conventional wisdom and adds to our armory in our existential duty to slow and reverse climate change. We know that we must aggressively reduce our carbon footprint. But as we learn in this profound, timely, and important book, we can also pursue traditional solutions to harness the carbon already in our atmosphere―and replant it here on earth. A simple composting program and healthy soils can be a key weapon in saving our planet (from ourselves).” -- Gavin Newsom, Lt. Governor of California

“Tickell entwines his explanation of the new agriculture in vivid reportage…[his] vision is captivating.” ― Publishers Weekly

“A journalist, activist, and filmmaker examines how soil-conscious farming practices may affect climate change…refreshingly, the narrative is richly visual.” ― Kirkus Reviews
