Marianne Williamson

Gavin Newsom

Josh Tickell is a Sundance Award Winning film director, bestselling author and thought leader in the fields of health, climate and alternative energy. In 1997, Josh’s vividly painted “Veggie Van” made headlines across the United States as it picked up used frying oil and turned it into fuel. His subsequent movie, FUEL, went to

theaters globally and was shown in the White House. Along with his co-directing partner and wife, Rebecca Harrell Tickell, as well as Executive Producer Leonardo DiCaprio and the Kiss the Ground nonprofit team, he is the co-writer, co-director and a producer of the upcoming documentary also titled KISS THE GROUND. 


In Kiss the Ground, author Josh Tickell takes on humanity’s greatest challenge: Climate Change. And along the way he delivers surprising insights into diet, health, nutrition and our relationship with food, each other and the planet. By focusing on the role of soil as the largest and most overlooked carbon sink on Earth, Kiss the Ground finds a new lens through which to view many of our problems and new tools to solve them. 


This book reverses, disrupts and totally abolishes all current thinking around FOOD and CLIMATE.


How the Climate Movement has missed the single most important thing that is happening on our Earth right now.

Why most of what you hear about your diet is wrong,

including the mantra of not eating certain meats.

How to eat well in spite of the harsh chemicals that are being

injected into most food.

A clear, concise plan for you, your family and loved ones around food and health will help you lose weight naturally, give you energy and vitality (and it saves the world too).


50% of the author’s residuals from the sale of the Kiss the Ground book* go to support the Kiss the Ground 501(c)(3) registered nonprofit which works to restore soils worldwide.

When will I get my copy of Kiss the Ground?

The hardcover, the eBook and the Audible audio book will all be available on November 14, 2017.

Is Kiss the Ground the name of this book, the nonprofit, the forthcoming movie or all three?

All three. The Kiss the Ground nonprofit which was co-founded by Ryland Engelhart and Finian Makepeace gave the inspiration for both the book and the movie. 


What is the relationship between the Kiss the Ground book, the Kiss the Ground nonprofit and the Kiss the Ground movie?

Kiss the Ground is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to regenerating soils worldwide. While partially inspired by the Kiss the Ground nonprofit, the Kiss the Ground book was independently researched and written by Josh Tickell who approached Ryland Engelhart about the idea of using the same title and donating 50% of the proceeds of the book back to the nonprofit. The forthcoming Kiss the Ground documentary film is independently produced and directed by Josh and Rebecca Harrell Tickell and Bill and Laurie Berenson with input from the Kiss the Ground nonprofit team. The Kiss the Ground nonprofit is one of the investors in the documentary film.
