Climate Friendly FarmingTM
The Climate Friendly Farming Project was established in 2003 with a $3.75m grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation to better understand carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural systems. The project has grown to include numerous additional climate change and energy related research topics explored with more than $16m in additional research funding secured to date by research team members and project collaborators. The CFF Research Team received national recognition with the 2009 Partnership Award for Innovative Program Models from USDA CSREES (now National Institutes for Food and Agriculture). The original Allen Foundation grant was completed in early 2010 with the publication entitled “Climate Friendly Farming: Improving the Carbon Footprint of Agriculture in the Pacific Northwest”, however the CFF Team and our collaborators continue to work on important climate change and energy research affecting the PNW.
