The Soil Centric Team

Soil Centric’s team has extensive knowledge of the soil and climate landscape, a proven record of bridging disparate sectors, and a demonstrated ability to forecast trends. We have active relationships across the globe with stakeholders in the sector, including nonprofits, farmers, ranchers, agencies, funders, and non-traditional partners.

Diana Donlon

Diana Donlon is Co-Founder and Executive Director of Soil Centric. A soil and climate advocate, she has a proven history of creating widespread awareness about the importance of healthy soil to climate stability at the local, national and international level. Prior to founding Soil Centric, Diana was the director of the Center for Food Safety' Soil Solution's program. Soil Solutions to Climate Problems, a short film she conceived of and produced, was screened during the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) in December 2015. The piece created an aesthetic that has been widely emulated, and its animated footage has been incorporated into several feature-length documentary films. Diana is a skilled public speaker, excels at identifying trends, and brings a depth of social and intellectual capital to the soil and climate movement. She has degrees from UC Berkeley and the Harvard Graduate School of Education and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco.

Kyle Lawson

Kyle Lawson is Co-Founder and Design Director of Soil Centric. He was previously Director of Design and Marketing at Sight Machine, a manufacturing analytics platform. His life changed when he read Kristin Ohlson’s book The Soil Will Save Us and decided he had to get involved in regeneration.

As a millennial deeply concerned about climate, he has first-hand knowledge of the need for Soil Centric’s Pathfinder Tool. Kyle now holds his Basic Level 1 certification in sheep sheering and is actively testing other regenerative resources on the Pathfinder. In addition to Soil Centric, he is a member of Sunrise Movement's SF Bay Area Hub and 10th Floor Studios, a group focused on regenerative conceptual product design and art installations.
