CAREL and Los Martinez Confront Climate Change

An innovative project to confront climate change has been started by CAREL and the community of Los Martinez. Farmers will sequester atmospheric carbon in soil using regenerative organic agriculture, while simultaneously addressing health, economic, and social issues that constitute the downside of globalization.

Regenerative organic agriculture is the only proven technology for removing large quantites of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It also addresses pressing issues of environmental degradation, agricultural collapse, and toxic threats to farmers and consumers. Many farmers recognize the need for change, but need models of a better way, as well as various forms of support, to successfully make the transition.

 

Progress to Date

  • The women of Los Martinez have started an organic teaching garden, with the expert assistance of agronomist and successful organic farmer Esmelin Mateo

  • A used Skalar Primacs SLC Total Organic Carbon analyzer has been purchased.

  • A regional marketing and distribution program is being developed that will include weekly box distribution and a produce truck

Hot News!

We have just purchased a used Total Organic Carbon Analyzer (Skalar Primacs SLC) for $4500. This was a unique opportunity, since these analyzers cost $35,000 new. Thank you for the donation, Peace Development Fund. Help us raise the additional $4000 needed to put the analyzer in working condition and move it to Los Martinez.
