Carbon Farming & Funding to Save Soils and Money (Farm Business Series 2021)

Carbon Farming & Funding to Save Soils and Money (Farm Business Series 2021)

Monday, August 2, 2021 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Carbon Farming to restore degraded soils, enhance crop production, and save money on water.

Jeff Borum (The East Stanislaus Resource Conservation District) and Katharine Howard (Point Blue Conservation Science) will cover the science and soil benefits of carbon farming regenerative practices. Farmers Chris Moore, Kevin and/or Melanie Cunningham will share their real life experiences in carbon farming practices including the use of cover crops, no till or reduced till,  crop diversity,  incorporating animals, and compost.  Then Jeff and/or Kate will talk about sources of funding and technical support.   

“Carbon farming is agriculture’s answer to climate change. Simply put, the goal is to take excess carbon out of the atmosphere, where the element causes global warming, and store it in the soil, where carbon aids the growth of plants. The principle is pretty straightforward – the practice, not so much.” (

Facilitated by Wendy Ring of Zero Waste Humboldt and Ivy North of the North Coast Growers Association.

Please register by noon on the day of the event.

The 2021 Small Farm Business Series is offered through the North Coast Small Business Development Center in proud collaboration with the North Coast Growers Association.
