Multiple Drawdown Solutions involve farming methods that return carbon to the soil instead of removing it. In California this is officially known as “Climate Smart Farming” and there are several great programs. Colloquially this range of solutions is called “Regenerative Agriculture.” Note – Drawdown reserves this term for a specific subset of methods – not the whole gamut. For lots of info on this topic go to the Carbon Farming page. Better farming methods are drawdown solutions 9,11,14,16,17,19,23,24 and more.
