We have to DRAWDOWN the carbon in our atmosphere. We have to REGENERATE our land back to health. Regenerative Agriculture, which blends modern discoveries in soil biology with indigenous wisdom, is one of the biggest solutions of our time. And yet, it is just starting to come into the conversation.
This course will teach you how to be a knowledgeable, inspiring advocate for this powerful solution!
Finian Makepeace is the co-founder of Kiss the Ground and a renowned presenter, media creator, and thought leader in the field of regenerative agriculture and soil health. His background as a musician and lifelong activist has given him the unique opportunity to blend his artistic vision with his ability to organize and advocate for this growing, global, and diverse community.
His “calling” is that people experience being a part of making history, and he believes that with enough new advocates promoting the ancient wisdom and new science of regenerative agriculture and ecosystem restoration we can heal our planet.
