In this book the term carbon farming is used to describe a suite of crops and agricultural practices that sequester carbon in the soil and in perennial vegetation like trees. The global average yield of potatoes per acre is about nine tons. Cafetales also sequester a lot of carbon in their forest soils and the biomass of the trees and coffee shrubs. Along with new economic priorities, a massive switch to clean energy, and big changes to much of the rest of the way our societies work, carbon farming offers a pathway out of destruction and a route to hope.

Defining Carbon Farming There are several, sometimes conflicting, definitions of carbon farming currently in circulation.
