This page highlights case studies, videos, tools, and other resources from our partners. Our goal is to make it easy and accessible to implement carbon farming practices into your business model.
Our Rooted Community Action Group
We’ve partnered with the Sustainable Food Lab to launch and facilitate an ongoing interactive action group on carbon farming, called the Rooted Community. It's open to all companies that have made the agriculture commitment. The group meets monthly, and content addresses a range of topics relevant to carbon farming, including:
- Measurement to quantify regenerative agriculture
- Resilience in small-holder supply chains, and
- Collaborations in specific crops/regions.
Interested in joining? Please contact Lisa Spicka (email@example.com) for more information, and to be included in this ground-breaking action group!
For those needing more tailored support, Sustainable Food Trade Association is available to help!
Tools to help you measure net carbon and explain how to talk about it:
- Cool Farm Alliance’s Cool Farm Tool
- USDA’s COMET-Farm Tool for calculating net carbon
