Hoes Down Harvest Fest

The Hoes Down Harvest Festival is dedicated to honoring and promoting the knowledge of agricultural arts and sustainable rural living through inspiration and education. Our goals extend beyond the weekend of fun and education.

Every year, for 30 years, the Hoes Down has generated valuable resources for local and statewide organizations working on projects which benefit sustainable agriculture and rural communities.

Please note that all tickets will be pre-sale this year. There will be no ticket sales at the gate. Our volunteers are updating the Hoes Down web site. Please check there for more information.

Regenerative Sourcing and Supply – Online Class

We’ve heard your desire to work in a way that contributes to regeneration. And also your question “How do we do it?” Building on the success of Kiss the Ground’s Soil Advocate Training, and TGI’s experience from over a decade of working on regeneration, this course will create a community for brands to explore their questions together, and to take concrete steps towards regeneration.

Soil Advocate Training with Kiss the Ground

Kiss the Ground was started by a group of friends in a living room inspired by the potential of soil to create a more vibrant, vital future for all. What began as a simple idea —that land regeneration could restore water cycles, improve food security, fight climate change, and create a safer, more equitable world —catapulted “everyday people” into a life dedicated to activism, collaboration, and change making on a global scale. By popular demand, Kiss the Ground’s Soil Advocate Training was born so that more people could get involved in the movement!

We invite you to join the global community of soil advocates (725+ and counting) actively sharing and implementing the solutions to some of the biggest problems facing our planet today ―and most importantly, bringing hope to their communities.
