Deborah Aller, Ph.D., Agricultural Stewardship Specialist, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County
Why is carbon so important? Why are soils that are rich in carbon healthier than those containing less carbon? This presentation will cover why carbon is critical for soil functioning, how to build carbon in garden and landscape soils, and why more soil carbon can mean fewer external inputs and healthier, more productive landscapes.
