This Challenge is to see how fast managers of grasslands in California can turn atmospheric carbon into water-holding, fertility-enhancing soil organic matter. It began January 2011 when Peter did some baselines in California. To see about baseline plots (current estimated cost, $250 apiece), contact him.

The California Grassland Carbon Challenge is part of the Soil Carbon Challenge, using the Challenge's monitoring methods, design, procedures, and deliverables.

Who is this for?
The Soil Carbon Challenge is not for everyone. It is for:
  1. Those who are, or will be, managing for more carbon (and water) in their soils and enhanced ecological function, and who want feedback and accountability relative to this goal.
  2. Those with the management capacity to benefit from the monitoring of soil carbon change.
  3. Those who have commitment. This is a 10-year monitoring program.

If you are one of these people, or you or your organization are interested in sponsoring or participating in this monitoring, please contact us.
