Humans are just 0.01% of all life on Earth, yet we have destroyed 83% of wild mammals.
Science meets inspiration in this tale of nature’s best hidden innovation: soil.
The Soil Story, created by Kiss the Ground, is a five-minute film that shares the importance of healthy soil for a healthy planet. Learn how we can “sequester” (store) carbon from our atmosphere, where it is harmful, and pull it back into the earth, where it belongs, through regenerative agriculture, composting, and other land management practices.

Introducing The Soil Story Curriculum from Kiss the Ground.
The goal is to increase soil health literacy for children, teens, and adults around the world. The mission of Kiss the Ground’s Education Program is to foster a deeper understanding of the vital role soil plays in the planet and to inspire a new generation of people to better engage with the environment and their communities.
What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.
Cofounder, Incredible Edible
Pam Warhurst cofounded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community.
