Soil for Life | Youth leadership
Feedback form is now closed.
Capturing carbon from the atmosphere in soil can not only benefit plant growth and the fertility of the land, but it can be a major tool in the effort to mitigate climate change. Innovative farmers and ranchers are developing best practices that can be adapted to community landscapes and home gardens. In this hands-on workshop led by Aidan Ferris, Aaron Ableman, Michael White and Robin White we'll roll up our sleeves and learn how we can play a role in capturing carbon in our own backyards, schoolyards, or local parks.
