Carbon Ranch

The Carbon Ranch Project explores strategies that use food and stewardship to sequester CO2 in soils and plants, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and build ecological and economic resilience in local landscapes. Today, the only possibility of large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere is through plant photosynthesis and other land-based carbon sequestration activities. Strategies include: enriching soil carbon, farming with perennials, employing climate-friendly livestock practices, conserving natural habitat, restoring degraded watersheds and rangelands, and producing local food. Over the past decade, many of these strategies have been demonstrated to be both practical and profitable. A carbon ranch bundles them into an economic whole with the aim of creating climate-friendly landscapes that are both healthy ecologically and the source of healthy food. The purpose of this web site is to provide a virtual library of resources related to the Carbon Ranch idea.
