A recent focus for Community Solutions is research and writing on the possibilities of restored soils and water systems to sequester carbon and cool the planet.  This work is woven into our longstanding commitment to permaculture and local organic growing.  Peter Bane, Community Solutions Fellow and Board member, and author of The Permaculture Handbook, is at work on a Community Solutions-sponsored layman’s guide to restoring water cycles—research that is also being propagated through our YouTube channel and an upcoming conference.
