Assessing and Improving Your Farm's Carbon Footprint

Learn about different approaches to estimating and improving the carbon footprint of your farm. Various tools allow you to evaluate greenhouse gas emissions and sequestration to identify on-farm hot spots that are major contributors, and then to create scenarios for how management changes might reduce these. The "OFoot" Organic Farming Footprint tool, for example, is a grower-oriented model under development at Washington State University. Another obvious approach is renewable energy, and California’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) program makes it easier and cheaper for small-scale renewable energy suppliers to produce renewable energy. Whether you currently have a renewable energy project covered by NEM or are interested in installing one, this workshop will give you up-to-date information on the program and where on-farm renewable energy is heading.
