Farmers and ranchers who have found ways to store carbon in soil and trees
can apply for grant funding.

California’s Healthy Soils Program is offering grants to farmers and ranchers who use farm practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and/or store carbon in soil, trees, and shrubs. Eligible practices include the addition of mulch and compost, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and the planting of windbreaks, hedgerows, riparian plantings, filter strips, silvopasture, and more. Applications due by 5pm on September 19.  Info: here
