Regenerative Agriculture: Carbon Farming at the Straus Dairy
11:20 AM - 12:15 PM
Carbon can be stored long-term (decades to centuries or more) in soils in a process called "soil carbon sequestration." Carbon Farming involves implementing practices that are known to improve the rate at which CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and converted to plant material and/or soil organic matter. The Straus Dairy is working with the Marin Carbon Project to implement a 20-year Carbon Farm Plan, designed to measure and optimize carbon capture. This session will explore carbon farming as a regenerative agriculture practice to help mitigate climate change.
