New Reports on the Important Role that San Diego Farmers and Ranchers Play in Reducing the Causes of Climate Change

In our goal to preserve farming in our region for future generations, San Diego Food System Alliance is working on a collaborative project to promote "carbon farming" in San Diego along with key partners. The reports below were developed in partnership with Batra Ecological Strategies to make the case for carbon farming in our region. We're thrilled to share these resources with our community!
