Resilient Roots: Carbon Sink Demonstration Project Video

Check out our new video highlighting research outcomes and community impacts of the Pauma Tribe’s Carbon Sink Demonstration Project. Join Connor Magee, Climate Science Alliance Research and Data Applications Manager, as he leads you through the project and discusses how carbon sink farming practices can be applied under Southern California conditions to benefit farmers and support climate mitigation and adaptation efforts.



The Climate Science Alliance, in collaboration with Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians and Solidarity Farm, has been leading the Carbon Sink Demonstration Project at Pauma Tribal Farms to illustrate how carbon sink farming practices can be applied under Southern California conditions to benefit farmers and support climate mitigation and resilience efforts.


Connor Magee, Climate Science Alliance Research and Data Applications Manager, co-led the Project and helped oversee the implementation of carbon farming practices, including the installation of hedgerow, windbreak, cover cropping, and seed bulking projects. In addition to implementing these practices, data on carbon farming practices, including data on soil moisture was gathered and analyzed to further support planning a climate resilient future.

This demonstration project was made possible by the California Coastal Conservancy and California Department of Food and Agriculture.
