MyLand Research Director Dr. Kris Nichols will be featured in the upcoming documentary Kiss the Ground. The documentary will premiere via Netflix on September 22, 2020.
“My years of research and study have shown that there is hope if we are focusing on biological-based practices for regenerating soil and addressing the twin issues of climate change and food production. Being a part of this documentary provided an opportunity to educate farmers, ranchers and consumers about this hope,” said Dr. Kris Nichols, Research Director, MyLand. “The MyLand System provides an option for farmers to utilize a biologically-based tool to regenerate soils. Part of the hope in soil regeneration is not to force farmers into practices but to provide them with opportunities and options such as the MyLand System to address their bottom line as well as climate change.”
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 studying arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. Dr. Nichols utilizes a soil health foundation to identify biological methods for agricultural production and tools and practices to reduce pest issues, soil erosion, fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.
Narrated by and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis. Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. This film is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible – to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species’ future.
