Join us for a conversation with regenerative organic agriculture expert Dr. Kris Nichols. We’ll be discussing Kiss the Ground and learning how, as Kris explains in the film, “The soil environment can hold more carbon than the atmosphere and plants living on the surface of the soil combined. We have an incredible ability to be able to store that carbon in the soil in a relatively short period of time.”
Dr. Kris Nichols is a leader in the movement to regenerate soils for healthy soil, crops, food, people and a planet. She is a Soil Microbiologist with over 25 years of research experience. Her laboratory research contributed to the understanding of glomalin – a substance produced by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi that contributes to nutrient cycling, soil structure and plant health. Her field research, working with farmers on the farming practices that build soil health, has been featured in all of the most important books on regenerative agriculture, including John Kempf’s Quality Agriculture, Gabe Brown’s Dirt to Soil, David Montgomery’s Growing a Revolution, Kristin Ohlson’s The Soil Will Save Us and Judith Schwartz’s Cows Save the Planet.
