Project Description

John is co-founder of the Marin Carbon Project and co-owner with his wife, Peggy Rathmann, of the Nicasio Native Grass Ranch.┬áJohn serves as the Marin Carbon Project’s (MCP) tireless spokesperson and advisor as it moves from research to implementation.

In response to the rapid pace of global climate change, the Marin Carbon Project (MCP) seeks to enhance carbon sequestration in rangeland, agricultural, and forest soils through applied research, demonstration and implementation.

The MCP vision is for landowners and land managers of agricultural ecosystems to serve as stewards of soil health and to undertake carbon farming in a manner that can improve on-farm productivity and viability, enhance ecosystem functions, and stop and reverse climate change.
