Now: Turning carbon footprints into healthy soils


A few pieces of news for our carbon offsetting project...  

1.  The name has changed: now look for "Carbon offsets by agricultural charcoal (biochar)" as "Turning carbon footprints into healthy soils."  And, it's moved: 


2.  The project works like this: Every time we get to a $500 donation landmark ($500, $1000, $1500, etc.) we move into action dissolving carbon footprints and creating fertile carbon sinks.  Which means each time we get to the next $500 mark, we take two metric tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere-- for good.  Please help us to hit the first landmark ($500) as soon as we can!

3.  Take it slow: This project is designed to be a slow build, rather than a single fundraising push.  Recurring donations help us to grow.  If you give $25 a month as a recurring donation, we get to sequester over a metric TON of CO2, with your name on it.  Consider this as a means for offsetting your carbon footprint for the year!

Thanks for your interest, and for helping us to build healthy soils while trapping CO2 from the atmosphere.
