Common Ground is supported by actors like Laura Dern, Jason Momoa, Rosario Dawson, Woody Harrelson, Ian Somerhalder, Donald Glover and more – the film aims to rally for the transition of 100M more acres of US land to regenerative by tripling the reach and impact of our first film.

Both Kiss and Ground and Common Ground emphasize Regenerative Agriculture and the need to use these agricultural practices. Why is regenerative agriculture important? Why is soil so important? Because it makes and sustains life.  At Contact Organics, we understand how our products support soil health microbiology and why is it so important. A two year study was conducted at the  University of Missouri by Dr Bob Kremer which demonstrated the beneficial affects of Weed Terminator for the microbiome of the soil.  Click here to read the summary, this is definitely in-line with regenerative agricultural concepts.

Regenerative Agriculture is important because it utilizes a system of farming practices that increases biological diversity, enriches soils, improves water holding capabilities, and enhances ecosystems. Regenerative Agriculture capture carbon and aboveground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulations. Regenerative Agriculture practices, capture carbon and improve soil health simultaneously. Healthy soil is the basis for improving the quality of life for all species and the environment. Regenerative Agriculture implementation is expected to increase to 100M Acres over the next few years.
