Can farm and rangeland soils sequester greenhouse gasses and help stop global warming?  The Marin Carbon Project is investigating whether certain management practices can make a difference. Soil cultivation and tillage techniques that reduce or eliminate soil disturbance and specialized grazing strategies are among the solutions being studied. Lead scientist, Dr. Whendee Silver of the University of California Berkeley, will report on results to date. MALT Executive Director Bob Berner will explain the value to local farmers, and participants will also hear from Project Director John Wick and local rangeland expert Jeff Creque.
