Carbon Farming is introducing technology that can change the continent of Africa, the soils can now be stimulated to sequester carbon and build organic matter in enormous quantities.
- Two Minutes summary of Carbon Farmer
- With over 10 years of worldwide experience the concept is now more accessible to Africa.
- Soils that have grown crops on emissions and without fertilisers are now rich with organic matter.
- With better yields and less costs, Carbon Farming offers a unique option.
- Help us to bring these ideas to African farmers.
and livelihoods of African farmers
Better and more fertile soils are the dream of the African smallholder farmer, to break out of the poor yield/ poor income cycle and put yield back into their crops and cash back into their pockets.
- Equipment has been developped that precision plants their crop, opens their soils and intoduces solubilised emissions.
- This equipment has been tried and tested with cotton and maize growing smallholders of Tanzania and Mozambique.
- Help us spread this technology across Africa through the training and enabling of 'Young farming entrepreneurs'.

Development from the ground up
For over 50 years more than $1 trillion in development-related aid has been spent on development in Africa. Green revolution has followed green revolution, but the continent and the soils have become poorer. The idea that African farming can be saved and invigorated by a sack of fertiliser still persists, and development agencies still make handsome livings and profits out of selling these ideas to funders. Many developed countries are beginning to identify that aid represents the poorest value for money sourced from their tax payers and donors.
Bringing smallholder farmers from the risky business of farming on marginal and tired land, to one where their soils will support them to grow enough crop to support and feed their families, will be the beginning of sustainable development for rural Africa.
Carbon Farmer Africa is not a development agency, but at its heart are two farmers, already farming and trading successfully in Africa. Feet firmly on the ground but with a sky high vision, are looking to bring techniques they have tried and tested to the African smallholder.
