Carbon Farming Workshop in Placerville

August 16 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Come & learn about carbon sequestration!

Improving soil fertility & water holding Capacity through increasing soil carbon

Agriculture and working lands play a significant role in climate change, both as a source of roughly one-quarter of global emissions, but maybe more importantly as a potential sink to reduce atmospheric CO2 through sequestration in agricultural soils and biomass. Building upon existing programs in the agricultural sector, climate-beneficial agricultural practices, as identified through a comprehensive Carbon Farm Planning process, can play a key role in significantly reducing atmospheric GHG, while simultaneously improving the productivity, resilience and ecological sustainability of agricultural landscapes and improving environmental health.
