CARBON FARMING INTENSIVE WORKSHOP
Carbon Farming Breakthroughs—Building Soil to Radically Mitigate Climate Disruption
Capturing and storing carbon in the soil—carbon sequestration—is among the most practical and promising ways to mitigate climate disruption. Carbon farming also has multiple agricultural benefits: protecting against drought and flooding, enhancing fertility, and boosting production. Join us and learn from our team of expert carbon farming ranchers, scientists, policy makers, local entrepreneurs, and food system activists for a day at the beautiful Stemple Creek Ranch in West Marin, a thousand acres of protected agricultural land, raising grass-fed livestock using strict animal welfare practices while protecting the ecosystem.
