   Watch Promo

This course is derived from insights that were shared during the Sustainable Business Council’s #SoilTotallyROCKS event. The Sustainable Business Council is a professional networking and educational forum for business leaders and professionals in Southern California.

Course Description

Welcome! The following course shows how soil and the environment are connected. How we are all one. Join us as we journey into the mindset of sustainable business leaders and explore the soil eco-system and what can be done to protect the precious planet we all call home! We are the generation that can regenerate our planet. The solution is right beneath our feet. All we need is Common Ground!

What Makes this Course Unique in the Market?

This course is truly unique for multiple reasons. Students can take this course at their own self-directed pace. Instead of being all about sharing theoretical constructs this course will be a 360 degree learning experience in which the learner is as much a teacher and mentor as a student. In this way the lessons shared in this course will quickly become practical information you can easily implement in your daily life. The insights shared in this course will be about the craft of the person sharing them as much as the lessons that they share. The subject matter will not only nourish your sense of wellbeing but it will also feed that part of you that is on a quest for humanitarian knowledge, peace, love and understanding with all. And the course will be fun and give you something really remarkable to look forward to each and every day.

This course also comes with a virtual mentor! Prof Molly, me, I'm standing by for your email to help you better understand this Common Ground course. I'll be posting the responses to your questions on the course discussion board. Please connect with me via social media.
