Local climate change group 350Vermont has launched a new effort aimed at agricultural practices.

They say the idea behind the "Put Carbon in the Ground" campaign is to better harness plants that suck carbon from the air and put it into the soil through roots.

The group's goal is to transition to climate-friendly agricultural and land management practices.

Field organizer Jaiel Pulskamp says the mission is to educate people about practical solutions to stop climate change.

"Essentially what we're doing is working in communities to help them implement some of these practices to build soil health and there's a lot of different strategies around ways that they can plug in," Pulskamp said.
