Regenerative Agriculture and Carbon Smart Farming
From Jeff Layne on April 5th, 2017

Too much carbon in the atmosphere heats our planet beyond capacity for it to sustain life as we know it. Too much carbon in the oceans makes them unfit for the life balances that have evolved through the millennia. Tim LaSalle believes that returning much of this lost carbon to the soil will not only mitigate the destructive aspects it causes in the atmosphere and the ocean, it will improve and cleanse water cycles, add fertility and life to the soils, and build climate resilience into farmed and grazed lands. He calls this life-giving, life-saving strategy, Regenerative Agriculture – farming and grazing practices that reverse climate change by rebuilding soil carbon levels while also restoring degraded soil biodiversity.
