Method of Carbon Dioxide Removal/StorageMineralization / Enhanced Weathering
Project DescriptionCarbon Gardener is a citizen-science approach to advance the science and awareness of enhanced weathering - a powerful land-based carbon removal technology.
- The project will provide community gardens with rock dust materials (a natural enhanced weathering method) and research trainings.
- By partnering with local high schools, they will also educate communities on the science behind enhanced weathering as a climate solution.
How will Carbon Gardener Achieve its Goals?
- Carbon Gardener will work with a distributed network of partner schools and citizen scientists. They will provide the necessary supplies and trainings for the experiments.
- The participants will apply powdered basalt (rock dust) to garden beds and measure the carbon dioxide sequestration.
- The results will be disseminated in an entirely open-sourced platform for use by non-profit, commercial, and academic enhanced weathering projects.
How will your contributions help Carbon Gardener?Carbon Gardener is seeking funds for equipment to create the rock dust kits.
Additionally, the project requires staffing and training for the experimentation.
- $2,000 for the rock dust supplies and shipping
- $8,000 for the dissemination of the results to commercial, non-profit, and academic entities

Project Application Vetted ByAll DrawDAO projects are rigorously vetted by a volunteer panel of scientists and climate researchers. We thank again the group below who was so generous in giving their time to review the CarbonGardener application, amongst many others. To read Carbon Gardener's full project application, visit here.
