Using Urban Soils to Soak Up That Carbon !
The soils beneath our feet have the potential to serve as an important carbon sponge, soaking up CO2 from the atmosphere and depositing it via photosynthesis into the ground as soil carbon compounds. This simple process can be aided by our actions, and can serve as an important and inexpensive bridge to climate solutions.
Come learn how individuals and organizations can implement practices that will maximize soil carbon storage, as well as improve soil and water quality, and reduce erosion.
