Carbon Farming: Regenerative Agriculture for Climate Stabilization (LIVESTREAM)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The global climate crisis is here and impacting communities, farms and ecosystems worldwide. Three primary strategies have developed in response: reducing greenhouse emissions, adapting to a destabilized climate and re-sequestering atmospheric carbon to slow or reverse the effects of climate change. This workshop will focus on the role of agriculture in this third strategy of carbon sequestration. We’ll look at farming systems from around the world that have demonstrated the ability to increase carbon storage in perennial plants and organic topsoil. These strategies include agroforestry, management-intensive grazing, organic no-till and a wide range of other crop and soil management practices. We’ll go from there to discuss carbon farming applications in working landscapes of the eastern temperate U.S., the current state of global and regional carbon markets, and the most recent developments in carbon farming science and practice.

This workshop will be livestreamed on www.virtualgrange.org
