Carbon Farming Network
Regional Carbon Farming Hubs
To continue building the CF Network, 40 California RCDs are self organizing into seven Regional Carbon Farming Hubs encompassing over 12.5 million acres of agricultural lands. Regional Hubs will capitalize on the strong institutional relationships that exist between RCDs, their historic collaborative relationship with the USDA NRCS, and the trust they hold with local agricultural communities. Establishing the Hubs, a three-year capacity building effort, will train and support additional carbon farm planners, hire seven regional hub coordinators, conduct regional needs assessments, develop five-year implementation plans, greatly expand climate beneficial agriculture outreach and education efforts, and establish regional Hub governance and technical advisory bodies.
