Introducing a Brand New Lifestyle Course from Kiss the Ground
Regenerative Gardening and Living with Farmer Rishi: Learn how to apply Regenerative Principles and Practices to your home garden and lifestyle.
From: June 19 - July 31, 2019 (See full schedule below)
Where: Attend Online or In- Person in Los Angeles
In partnership with Urban Farmer Rishi Kumar, Kiss the Ground is excited to introduce a new Lifestyle Course that teaches regenerative gardening in a way that (sub)urban dwellers can connect with regenerative systems and healthy soils.
This course will cover how to think about, planting seeds, improving soil fertility, composting, and more―regardless of how much space you have! Plus, get ready to dive into food sourcing, fermentation and how to use food to heal and work towards optimal health.
The course will be 7-weeks long, meeting online OR in-person in Los Angeles. We will meet once a week for two hours in a classroom and meet for three additional 3-hour sessions at a garden.
Welcome to the next phase of home gardening.
There are plenty of online videos and courses on gardening. What makes this course different?
The principles of regenerative agriculture are changing the globe. And many of these same principles and practices can be applied to home gardens―increasing water holding capacity and infiltration, sequestering carbon, and improving biodiversity.
This is the next phase in home gardening, and we are excited to make it more available to the world, starting with you!
Do you live in a city but want to compost and garden?
Are you a home gardener already who is wondering how to integrate regenerative principles and healthy soil practices?
This course is for you.
Regeneration in Practice.
The goal of this course is to educate and inspire everyone to create gardens with the power to regenerate land, bodies, minds, and spirits. This gardening course will provide the fundamental ideas and practices necessary to participate in regeneration at any scale and in any location--from indoor and balcony gardens to suburban home gardens to public landscapes. The course will define and describe what regeneration means as a cultural concept, and demonstrate how that practice can be reflected tangibly in a garden setting.
Some key concepts to be explored include:
ALL COURSE SESSIONS will be RECORDED and available to all course participants following each session.
