Front Range Carbon Project
We are developing a variety of approaches to build healthy soils. Our projects include carbon farming, perennial crops and composting food waste into soil conditioner using insects.
Carbon Farming Experiment, Boulder, CO. (Summer 2017)
Injecting carbon into soils is a very effective approach to building healthy, fertile soils. Rangelands across the world are degraded through overuse and mismanagement. We can help restore this prairie grasslands by priming the ecosystem with compost application, effectively restoring the soil that has been lost through years of mismanagement. We are initiating a research project examining the effects of compost application to degraded rangelands to enhance productivity, soil carbon storage, water and nutrient retention. This project is modeled after the Marin Carbon Project.
