Description

This session is part of New Directions in the American Landscape (NDAL)'s landscape practitioner webinar series, "Ecology, Culture, and the Designed Landscape: Professional Practice Across Disciplines and Scales" and co-sponsored by Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center & Wild Ones - Native Plants, Natural Landscapes.

Carbon Farming is farming in a way that reduces greenhouse gas emissions or captures and holds carbon in vegetation and soils. It is managing land, water, plants, and animals to restore ecosystems, ameliorate climate change, and provide nutrient-dense food and educational opportunities. Also described as Regenerative Agriculture, these goals are achieved through a focus on lower-sequestration strategies like no-till organic annual cropping, perennial crops, and managed grazing. Chad will discuss the designer’s role on projects from a small urban yard to hundreds of acres.
