Healthy soils, healthy climate
The Carbon Farming project aims for a double goal: mitigate climate change and improve agricultural soils. How? By implementing carbon sequestration (CS) techniques on farm-level: fixing CO2 from the atmosphere in soils and improving the soil quality and biodiversity. Healthy soils, healthy climate. A win-win situation.
The seven partners of the Carbon Farming project are working between Sep 2018 and Aug 2021 to promote Carbon Farming in the North Sea Region. We believe that Carbon Farming is not only of interest for farmers, but that the whole society can benefit. We are therefore not only focusing on implementing CS techniques on farm, but also facilitate collaboration between farmers and interested parties, in- and outside the food chain.
