Carbon Farm Learning Lab

Food Forest Farm advocates carbon farming as one solution to the climate emergency. We share knowledge, research, grow, distribute, and install plants that are part of the solution.

Find upcoming Carbon Farming events on this page.

Carbon farming includes a variety of agricultural methods aimed at sequestering atmospheric carbon into the soil. Increasing the carbon content of soil can aid plant growth, increase soil organic matter, improve soil water retention capacity, and reduce fertilizer.

Many indigenous and agro-ecology growing practices would be considered “carbon farming” as these practices incorporate perennial plants, and diverse, multi-functional groupings of plants that mimic natural systems. Another term people use is Regenerative Organic Farming.

Some of the farming practices we encourage and use ourselves include, organic cover cropping, silvopasture, forest farming, no-till mulch, riparian buffers, shelterbelts, and other perennial cropping systems. We recommend good planning and design before any of these practices or methods are incorporated into the landscape.

Mediterranean Abundance: Growing Figs and Artichokes in Cold Climates.

Finger Lakes Permaculture Institute, (FLPCI) is hosting its 5th Annual Permaculture Weekend. Jonathan Bates of Food Forest Farm has converted an unused, unheated, high tunnel greenhouse into a thriving agro-ecosystem. An abundance of food comes from a polyculture system that includes plants adapted to the Mediterranean like environment within the greenhouse, including figs, grapes, perennial kale, garlic, strawberries, and many other plants.
