EcoWatch

8 Ways to sequester carbon: Virtually all climate change experts agree that to avoid catastrophe we  must first and foremost put everything we can into reducing CO2  emissions. But an increasing number are saying that's not enough. If we  are to limit atmospheric warming to a level below which irreversible  changes become inevitable, they argue, we'll need to actively remove CO2  from the air in fairly hefty quantities as well.

Rodale Institute

Rodale Institute has pioneered regenerative organic agriculture since  our founder, J.I. Rodale, wrote "Healthy Soil=Healthy Food=Healthy  People" on a chalkboard back in 1942. His son, Robert Rodale, coined the  term 'regenerative organic agriculture' to distinguish a kind of  farming that goes beyond simply 'sustainable.'

Biovortex

Biovortex has been described as a biologically minded approach  towards regenerative solutions, a scientific and soulful appreciation  for the interrelated nature of all life and energy, an art project  utilizing plants, people, places, projects, photography, and  demonstrating the effectiveness of ecodynamic gardening, building soil,  transforming waste, permaculture design, and environmental  consciousness! There is a relationship of land, water, earth, sky,  plants, animals, fungi, life, death, rebirth, as the flow of life energy  - photons from the sun, reaches into photosynthetic bacteria  encapsulated within plants. An age old cycle of energy capture,  transfer, and release, as plants eat animals, and fungi eat plants, and  animals eat themselves... Utilizing the systems perfected by nature, and  intelligent observation, allows the design of systems of incredible  productivity, that simultaneously regenerate and restore the land, soil,  and watershed.

DEM Pure Farms

The Pure Certification represents professional outdoor full sungrown,  greenhouse, light deprivation, indoor cultivated legally licensed  cannabis farms and companies that process, extract or sell Pure  Certified Cannabis. It represents large scale farms to boutique craft  farms. These farms grow food, bee pollinator gardens, save seeds, create  polyculture systems, provide fair and equal pay to all employees, and  grow much of their own nutrients. They have created closed loop systems  in their cultivation that help ensure the purity of their inputs and  their medicine. Hügelkutur beds, swales, and many carbon sequestration  techniques are used to create health and balance of soil. Local plant  ferments and dynamic teas are created as liquid nutrients. Minimal  inputs are needed from the marketplace. Closed loop cultivation is key  to all farms and businesses that are certified.
