What Does Carbon Farming Do?
Carbon Farming significantly improves soil viability and the soils capacity to hold water. Carbon farming draws down carbon from the atmosphere and stores it in the roots and soil. Carbon farming improves biodiversity and organic output while allowing the deeper root systems to reduce soil erosion caused by grazing and bare soil water runoff. This more traditional form of farming and grazing is now considered the most technologically sound and is agricultures answer to many of its challenges.
Carbon farmers apply compost, rotate grazing and employ methane capture systems that produce energy from manure digesters. They also work to restore the woodlands and streams that are all part of a bee happy and bird abundant ecosystem. Check out CarbonCycle.org to learn more.
