You are invited to join World Tree, Kiss the Ground, the Soil Health Academy and special guest, Adrian Grenier for an action-packed panel where we will dive deep into solving some of the world’s biggest problems, together.

Over the last eight years, Kiss the Ground has been awakening millions of people to the possibilities of regeneration. The momentum and awareness reached new heights with the documentary, Kiss the Ground, which offers a hopeful vision of a regenerative future, and features conservation agronomist Ray Archuleta. Ray and the team from the Soil Health Academy train farmers on improving soil health through practical, regenerative agricultural principles.

World Tree works with nearly 300 farmers in North and Latin America to plant and grow Empress Trees for the purposes of carbon drawdown, soil health and farmer prosperity.

We are awed and delighted to bring these three organizations together for the first time. Join these inspiring leaders – Ryland Engelhart (Kiss the Ground), Adrian Grenier, Ray Archuleta (Soil Health Academy),  and Doug Willmore (World Tree) – as they launch a new partnership.

World Tree

World Tree creates regenerative tree farming projects in North and Latin America in partnership with farmers and other landowners. Their programs are designed to create community, provide new revenue streams for farmers, rebuild the soil, help reverse global warming, and protect forests.

At the heart of World Tree’s programs is the Empress Splendor tree (Paulownia elongata & fortunei). The Empress Splendor grows to maturity in just 10 years. It also regenerates from the stump after harvest to provide multiple crops from one planting. Grown in a managed farm setting, this eco-timber provides a reliable alternative to logging old-growth and other natural forests.
