Soil Carbon Restoration at Many Hands Organic Farm
Since the early 1980s we have made a priority of farming organically using an integrated growing system that includes livestock, vegetable and fruit crops. We focus on maximum fertility through soil carbon-sequestering techniques including cocktail cover cropping, heavy mulches, soil mineralization, and foliar applications of minerals and biologicals. This is our 7th year practicing extremely limited tillage – what the mycorrhizal fungi like best!
To learn more about our soil carbon restoration and our soil carbon-sequestering techniques, please review Soil Carbon Restoration: Can Biology do the Job? a white paper written by Jack when he was the policy director of NOFA/Mass. Additionally, the NOFA/Mass video below discusses soil carbon restoration.
