There are thousands of organizations, websites, videos, books, and podcasts that address the issues and solutions of climate change. Our goal is to provide what we believe are the most inspiring and accessbile resources to educate and equip the regenerative leader and lay person to take action in their sphere of influence. We will continually add to this master resource list over time.

Chasing Coral – Produced by Jeff Orlowski Netflix

Kiss the Ground – Narrated by Woody Harelson Netflix
“Kiss the Ground reveals that by regenerating the world’s soils we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.”
Biggest Little Farm Amazon Prime
“The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.”
