Carbon Farming-Growing Growers

September 14, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm


About this Event
Carbon farming is defined by using certain methods (no-till, agroforestry, perennial cover crops) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and/or capture and hold carbon in vegetation and soils. For over 25 years Prairie Birthday Farm has been nurtured to diversity (soil, plant, organism, etc.)in order to improve yield (food production, ecosystem health, nutrient density, carbon storage). This workshop will report on the current research (exploring the role of trees/shrubs on the farm in relation to carbon sequestration) will describe the process and some of the outcomes. Attendees will learn what was, what it has become, some of the many changes and what is planned.
