The Carbon Connection: Soil Climate Solutions
Soil is life, and life is carbon. The carbon and organic matter in soil plays an important role in capturing greenhouse gases, protecting water resources, and feeding a growing planet. How we treat soil on farms, in cities, and in our backyards is an important part of the solution to many of the global environmental dilemmas we face. To understand how the local affects the global, come learn about the cycles of organic matter and the role of soil carbon in the garden. This class will cover how to build organic matter, manage nutrients, develop natural soil communities, and promote other ecosystem benefits to grow gardens, cities, and farms that are not only more bountiful, but more climate friendly as well.
