Journalism that becomes a part of the story

Grant Narratives

Every grant is a story of a problem and the reasons we believe to hold a part of the solution. We help organizations design their narratives before and after the project to help secure future funding.

Data Collection

We live in a data age, and numbers become as much of the story as the words themselves. Forage provides field research services so you can track data for reporting and to evolve your project in a lean and effective manner.

Reporting and Education

If something works, people need to hear about it. We help with materials and presentations for your funder and your audience.

The San Juan Charcoal Project

A series of organizations in the San Juan Islands are working to transition fire danger into soil resilency. By thinning overstocked forests and converting the material into charcoal, or biochar, we are storing more than half of the tree’s dry weight in carbon dioxide. This stable carbon is also a soil ammendment that increases soil porosity, moisture retention, raises soil pH, nutrient and water retention capacity, and improves biological activity in forest and agricultural soils. As charcoal is stable for up to ten melleniums, these soil benefits could improve soil and plant resilency for generations in a changing climate.
