Featuring Thomas Akin, State Resource Conservationist, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Soil-incorporated cover crops provide large volumes of soluble carbon, the best fuel for the soil food web. Tom Akin will give a brief introduction to suitable cover crops to improve urban soils.

Presented at the Urban and Suburban Carbon Farming to Reverse Global Warming Conference, organized by Biodiversity for a Livable Climate, at Harvard University on May 3, 2015.
