Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Carbon Roots International implements agricultural development and renewable energy projects in rural Haiti using innovative biochar and green charcoal techniques.

 

 

With population increase straining global farmland and forcing impoverished farmers to squeeze every last drop of productivity out of their soils, an intervention to aid small-plot farmers is needed more than ever.  In regions such as sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Southern Asia, soil loss and over-production plague subsistence farmers, while the need for cooking fuel devastates local forest stands.  Therefore, Carbon Roots International works to find and introduce innovative and simple technologies such as Biochar and Green Charcoal that enable small-scale farmers to:

  1. Combat deforestation through promotion of alternative sources of cooking fuel;
  2. Increase crop yields through retention of soil nutrients and water;
  3. Sequester carbon dioxide on a long-term basis; and
  4. Grow and sustain local agricultural economies.
