The Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) announced that it collaborated with several local agencies in contributing part of the matching funds crucial to the Marin Resource Conservation District (RCD) being awarded a $1 million grant from the California Coastal Conservancy. The funding from this grant will help to plan, design and implement carbon farming projects that aim to improve soil productivity, water infiltration, biological diversity and increase greenhouse gas sequestration on ranches in western Marin County.
