Carbon FarmingFacing the Future
The mounting scientific evidence of climate change and predictions for the future carries with it a need for human action. Both adaptation and mitigation are necessary action pathways upon which society must embark.
This lesson focuses on mitigation activities possible through the lens of agriculture, specifically agriculture practiced in an agroecological fashion. Agroecology is the practice of agriculture in a way that mimics natural processes and takes an ecosystem approach to growing food.
- Understand the difference about having carbon in the soil but not in the atmosphere
- Learn what the connection is between healthy soil and healthy food
- Consider competing priorities that might make it difficult for you to implement climate smart practices on a farm
