What is carbon farming?
Carbon farming means managing the land in a way that allows carbon to be stored in healthy bush and Country. Running a carbon project involves committing to manage Country a certain way to avoid the emissions released by hot dry season wildfires or allowing bush to regenerate and come
back to health. Carbon credits are earned for the carbon emission that are avoided or for the carbon stored in healthy Country. Credits can be sold to generate income and money reinvested to look after Country and Communities.
