The Citizens Environmental Council invites you to a screening of “Kiss the Ground” on Thursday, September 14, followed by a discussion led by a representative from the San Mateo Resource Conservation District about sustainable farming and gardening practices. Home gardeners will learn how to save water and foster photosynthesis that improves their soil and draws down atmospheric carbon.
Cosponsored by Burlingame’s Parks and Recreation Department, this program will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Elm Room at the Burlingame Community Center at 850 Burlingame Ave. in Burlingame. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required.
Narrated by and featuring Woody Harrelson, “Kiss the Ground” discusses regenerative agriculture, which rebuilds soil organic matter, restores ecosystems and creates food supplies. Among those featured in the film is Doniga Markegard of the Markegard Family Grassfed ranch in Half Moon Bay.
The 45-minute version of the film that will be shown is shorter than the original version, which lasts an hour and 15 minutes. It will be followed by a discussion led by Doug Millar, an agricultural stewardship project manager with the San Mateo Resource Conservation District, about how we can draw down atmospheric carbon with sustainable farming and grazing practices.
