John owns Nicasio Native Grass Ranch and is the co-founder of the Marin Carbon Project which has done powerful research and experiemnts about how to increase carbon sequestration in the soil. Their studies have been done primarily on grasslands, but the work will be expanding and their was discussion of how these discoveries can be useful in working with crops.
