Our guest on the Gardenerd Tip of the Week Podcast is Rebecca Tickell this week. She’s the co-director and producer of Kiss the Ground, the new documentary from Big Picture Films. We talk about life on an avocado farm, and we dive into regenerative agriculture and its power to reverse climate change.
Rebecca shares the journey to her own realizations, and the process of transitioning her avocado farm to regenerative practices. Along the way we have a few good laughs.

I’m a fan of your podcast but was concerned to see episodes featuring contributors to the film Kiss the Ground.
I hope you will also spend equal time interviewing BIPOC farmers/land caretakers who have been thoughtfully and thoroughly critical of this film.
If you’re not sure where to start, I recommend reaching out to Chris Newman of Sylvanaqua Farms.
In these times, it is more important than ever to use our privilege and platforms to open pathways for equity and restorative justice, and I think this is one way you can do so.
Thank you for reading and considering.
Hi Tia, thanks for posting your concerns here. We are definitely interested in inclusiveness and have previously reached out to a number of BIPOC to participate on the podcast. Sadly, as of yet, we haven’t heard back from many of them, but we’ll keep trying. That said, if you haven’t already, check out the podcasts with Natalie Flores, Nate Looney, Rishi Kumar and his mom Manju Kumar, Eleu Navarro, and our upcoming episode with Sanjay Rawal. We appreciate the lead for more potential guests as well and will check out Chris Newman. We’ve also had requests for guests in southern regions and are constantly looking for the right fit.
