This Colorado-based Nonprofit works on-the-ground with producers to create Carbon Farm Plans (CFP). Mad Agriculture describes CFPs as "an exit ramp for producers out of industrial agriculture" and uses them to direct a variety of technical and financial resource to regenerative agriculture. They also use carbon farm and ranch plans to help producers access high-value markets for their products and make a long-term commitment to producers to verify, modify and complete the CFP.
Mad Agriculture can also connect you to Nori, a carbon market dedicated to valuing the soil carbon farmers and ranchers are building. They are also taking the lead in planting Kernza, a perennial grain, in Colorado.
Soil Centric's Pro Tip
If you are in the Front Range, be sure to check out Mad Ag's Community Forum, a monthly event, often held the last Friday of each month at the Altona Grange, Longmont, Colorado.
There's sometimes a potluck followed by discussion providing people throughout the Front Range the opportunity to bring issues to the community circle and celebrate agrarian culture. Check with Mad Ag to make sure it's on!
