Why is RFFI.ORG interested in dirt? We know that restoration of degraded lands is vital for the global food system, and also generates important environmental benefit. What role can foresters play? RFFI produced a carbon rich soil amendment by converting competing vegetation removed from our forests into North Coast Biochar for use in neighboring farms. Next we will experiment with kilns to create #biochar that will be used to enrich and increase the water retention in our forest soil. RFFI continues to support biochar production, policy and funding. Read #DirttoDinner lo learn more about the critical need for soil regeneration. https://bit.ly/2p1RDKQ

RFFI.ORG Friday Futures. On selected Friday's we feature the work of our RFFI partners and supporters, who are making the world a better place and contributing to a livable future. #FrankStrie is a leader in biochar uses and education; he established #TerraPretaDevelopments in Tasmania. Frank Strie is exploring the potential uses of biochar, that is known primarily as a carbon rich soil amendment that decreases water and fertilizer use and stores carbon in the soil for hundreds of years. He is a leader in biochar research, production and creating awareness of the many uses for Biochar. His focus on biochar is timely as the need for carbon intelligent solutions has become urgent. Biochar is one of the key technologies for the new bio-based economy. Biochar will be one of the most important raw materials for sustainable building, electronics, consumer products, energy, health and agriculture.

RFFI.ORG is sponsoring “Blue Carbon” at Nov 16, 2019 #MendocinoLandTrust Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Fort Bragg,CA. Earth Corps and #RestoreAmericasEstuaries joined #JohnRybczyk of Western Washington University to prove that healthy coastal wetlands store more carbon than many fully established forests. “Blue Carbon” shows how coastal wetlands mitigate climate change and reduce carbon. This video was filmed in the Snohomish Estuary in Puget Sound. RFFI sponsorship reflects our commitment to teaming up with other climate action pioneers. E.g., in “catchingcarbon.org”, we partner with “Farming Blue Carbon” to draw-down atmospheric carbon. Tickets at WildAndScenicMendo.BrownPaperTickets.com
