“Kiss the Ground” Film Screening [VIRTUAL]
Thursday, June 3 at 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m.Free
Climate change is causing lasting and devastating problems for our world right now. As a hub for information and community-building, the Library is a critical part of the response to this emergency. Climate Future is a community-driven initiative to share knowledge, inspire action, and—collectively—change the world for the better by reducing local emissions.
Join us, from the comfort of your own couch, for a screening of the powerful new film, Kiss the Ground. Kiss the Ground is a full-length documentary narrated by Woody Harrelson that sheds light on a “new, old approach” to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world. Watch the trailer!
