Community members and Gonzaga University students will be gathering this Sunday 11/23/2014 at Greg Gordon's house near Polly Judd Park in Spokane for an outdoor biochar workshop starting at 11am.
Friends of Polly Judd Park member Mariah McKay plans to bring her kiln and share about her experiences making, crushing and using biochar in the garden and maintaining a year round vermiculture system. Phil Small will bring a Lee Pittmon bestbiocharkiln.com cone kiln, and will review lessons learned from Biochar School in California last week. He has brought back some new biochar samples, including EM1 inoculated biochar prepped by Simran Raphaell regenerative-earth.com.
If air quality conditions cooperate, we will light up a kiln, and talk through the pyrochemistry of heat distillation.
Please RSVP to Mariah Rose McKay for the exact address of Greg Gordon's house. Facebook, call or email: 509-939-0015, email@example.com
We have heard that there is some work (stair building, mulching) that could be done to help out the park and the Food Forest project. So folks are encouraged to bring gloves and hand tools (like hand clippers), see if we can't do some soil building and some garden community building. Phil
