Welcome to Carbon8

We are an organisation created by farmers for farmers, to work together to create our regenerative future. As we share our knowledge with each other, we also acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, water, and community. We pay our respects to them, their cultures, and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

Our mission and goals

The Vision

Why we started Carbon8

Carbon8 emerged in response to the 2017 NSW/QLD drought, founded by a farmer, an accountant, and an artist. Originating as a solution to the profound impact of drought on rural communities, Carbon8 represented a departure from short-term band-aid approaches, seeking instead the root causes and sustainable, long-term solutions to drought resilience. No sexy KPIs or easy to write impact blurbs - Carbon8 is in it for the long haul and aims to be a major contributor to the regeneration of Country.

Our community warmly embraces primary producers, including family farms, small-holdings, those interested in eco-tourism, and young farmers. As a social fundraising platform, the extent of our impact is directly tied to the generosity of our donors, enabling us to extend crucial support to farmers. Central to our ethos is the recognition that farmers alongside or Elders are integral to our collective future.
