We've been focusing on our climate action education programs and on reducing our use of fossil fuels for years. Now we're creating a formal Carbon Drawdown plan to expand our climate action work across the organization so the farm can be carbon negative by Earth Day 2028 — capturing more carbon in its trees and soils than its buildings and operations emit.
