Recently, the Climate Science Alliance partnered with Solidarity Farms and the Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians to co-host the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Environmental Farming Act Science Advisory Panel (EFA SAP).

During the trip, Ellee Igoe from Solidarity Farms, Connor Magee, and Natalie Hernandez from the Pauma Tribe showcased their carbon farming demonstration project that recently received a CDFA Healthy Soils Grant. Partners discussed the project and the holistic approach of bringing together science, local knowledge, community and youth outreach, and shovel and spade to this unique carbon farming project that sequesters carbon and tests strategies advancing resilience in San Diego’s Agricultural community. In addition to the advisory panel, representatives from the Pauma Tribe were on hand to discuss their leadership role and vision along with representatives from Solidarity Farms to discuss the strength of the partnerships that make this project possible and how it serves as a model across the region and the state.

The Climate Science Alliance team is excited to be a part of this endeavor to test strategies and build resilient solutions for all.
