The UNCG Sustainability Film and Discussion Series will celebrate its 17th year by partnering with the UNCG Environment and Sustainability Program returning to in-person screenings with its long-time partner, the Weatherspoon Art Museum.
November's film is Kiss the Ground
To significantly mitigate the climate crisis, there are a lot of problems humans need to solve — and as the new Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground
suggests, one of the biggest problems is right under your feet: the soil. Narrated by Woody Harrelson
and featuring music from your favorite avocado farmer Jason Mraz
, the star-studded film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, while simultaneously invigorating a new sense of hope and inspiration in viewers.
The discussion leader is Matt Armstrong
, new director of the Institute for Regenerative Design and Innovation
and is working intimately with the Director of Renew Forsyth to deeply link Regenerative Agriculture and Curriculum Design through urban garden, farming and food forestry. He hopes to connect Forsyth and Guilford counties through this work.
