This was received from friends and colleagues in England about an exciting new project: “It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch on 12th October of an exciting new organisation: Climate Friendly Food. I have been working with CFF over the last six months to develop the first on-line farm carbon calculator that fully takes into account soil processes, and the world’s first low carbon food certification programme. The exciting discovery is that correct farm practice – we term it “rich soil farming” – has a potential to absorb carbon dioxide that is so powerful it could play a major role in bringing down atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. CFF is dedicated to developing and promoting best practice for maximum carbon sequestration on farms in the UK and internationally to make real the vast potential of agriculture in the move to avert climate change.
You can get more information, follow the project, give your support or arrange certification on our website www.climatefriendlyfood.org.uk (a simple site is currently in place and the new full website will be go on line with the launch). The carbon calculator is free to use, is for farms and gardens and can even be used for home gardens, so you can find out how much CO2 your own garden absorbs every year!”
