Carbon bus tour

A major component of the Young Carbon Farmers project is the educational tours, which provide young farmers and agribusiness professionals with an opportunity to hear from leading scientific experts and see what is happening on-farm in the carbon farming and climate variability space. These tours are more commonly referred to as the 'Carbon Bus' Tours.
