Soil Carbon Coalition

We are a nonprofit organization (501c3) wanting to advance the practice, and spread awareness of the opportunity, of turning atmospheric carbon into soil organic matter.


Our principal project is the Soil Carbon Challenge, an international prize competition to see how fast land managers can turn atmospheric carbon into water-holding, fertility-enhancing soil organic matter. (Peter has been touring the continent in a converted school bus, doing baselines.)


We think the opportunity for increasing carbon and water in the soil is huge, and will help drive improvement in social and economic conditions as well as enhance biodiversity and ecological resiliency. We also offer a participatory workshop for interested communities.
