New Movie Club + Make a Camp Pizza! + Braiding Sweetgrass

Kiss the Ground kicks off our Movie Club!

Virtual Movie Club
December 9 | 4:30pm – 6:00pm

Our book club events have been so successful, we’re adding films into the mix! Now available on Netflix, the documentary Kiss the Ground unpacks the ways the earth’s soil may be the key to combating climate change. Big Sur Land Trust is starting our own healthy soils program as part of the fire recovery efforts at Marks Ranch!

Hear from Agricultural Water Quality Coordinator from NOAA’s Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Pam Krone and regenerative rancher and author Doniga Markegard – whose family ranch is featured in Kiss the Ground. Watch the film on your own and then meet up with us for our first virtual movie club event. RSVP to join us here.

Read Braiding Sweetgrass with Big Sur Land Trust 
Virtual Book Club
November 12 | 4:30pm – 6:00pm

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist and as a woman, Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how other living beings offer us gifts and lessons in Braiding Sweetgrass.

Join Big Sur Land Trust as we discuss this inspiring book and hear representatives from local tribes share their perspectives. RSVP here. Once again, we’re partnering with Pilgrim’s Way in Carmel and Downtown Book and Sound in Salinas.

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor Bank of America!

Who’s Craving Camp Pizza?
Camper’s Corner

Our Youth Outdoor Program, Camper’s Corner, has a special guest! Watch our beloved Chef Hyson teach you how to recreate the scrumptious pizza that our campers have enjoyed during their summers at Glen Deven Ranch.

Chef always shares important messages about healthy eating and enjoying food you make yourself. Follow along and share your personal pizza pies with us by tagging @BigSurLandTrustCampersCorner.


We’re delivering this week’s moment of wonder on a gentle breeze. Enjoy!
