Unearthing Solutions for our Soil, Health and Planet

Welcome to our Common Ground Post Screening Discussion

Common Ground is a new documentary that provides hope for future generations with concrete ways to fix an ailing planetary system. The documentary explores how regenerative agriculture, and the indigenous practices it’s rooted in, can help heal the soil, our health and the planet, and features renowned figures such as Rosario Dawson, Laura Dern, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Jason Momoa, Ian Somerhalder and farmer Gabe Brown.

By fusing journalistic expose’ with deeply personal stories from those on the front lines of the food movement, Common Ground unveils a dark web of money, power, and politics behind our broken food system. The stories profile a hopeful and uplifting movement of farmers who are using alternative “regenerative” models of agriculture that enhance soil health, biodiversity, and reduce carbon emissions. These alternatives pave the way for an economically viable agricultural system and stable economy.

Not just a Film but a Solution-oriented Movement

We are excited to share our post-screening conversation which connects the dots between the many critical issues and promising solutions presented in the Common Ground documentary. What is regenerative agriculture and could it be the key to unlocking many of our global challenges? Can we create a nutrient dense food system that supports the health of people and planet? Can we address environmental degradation while stabilizing the climate? The new film Common Ground answers these questions and many more.

To amplify the film’s message and take a deeper dive into the regenerative movement, we invited a diverse cross-section of visionary leaders whose work is closely aligned with the themes in the film. We hope you enjoy exploring these rich narratives and the critical insights offered by our distinguished guests.

“Despite all of our differences, we all share a common ground, the soil in which we live upon. Given that most of our food is grown in the soil, unhealthy soil means unhealthy food. Our health is directly tied to what we consume, and as mentioned in the film, food is quite literally medicine.” ~ IMDb User Reviews “Common Ground is structured as a moving letter to the next generation that will inherit the Earth. ~ Greg Archer – Movie Web “Elegantly photographed and empowering.” ~ LA Weekly “That rare documentary that actually proposes solutions…practical solutions.” ~ FilmThreat
