John Wick is a rancher, carbon farmer, and sustainable land management advocate. He is the co-founder of the Marin Carbon Project, which seeks to enhance carbon sequestration in rangelands, agricultural, and forest soils, and is the co-owner with his wife of the Nicasio Native Grass Ranch in Marin, California. On the ranch, John manages molecules, microorganisms, and rain at the watershed scale. John’s personal mission is to remove enough CO2 from the atmosphere through photosynthesis to get us below 350 ppm, or climate drawdown.
John works with scientists from UC Berkeley, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, and UC Davis, as well as all of the agricultural agencies, organizations, and institutions in Marin to develop an informed management of the landscape that is replicable, scalable, and broadly applicable.
