This weekend will take you through the science and latest research on biochar, but also get you skilled up on all the necessary steps
to create a biochar burner, create the char, inoculate it with beneficial micro-organisms, and apply it to the garden.
Join <a href=https://www.orcasongfarm.org/biochar-workshop>forest ecologist Carson Sprenger</a> and <a href=https://www.orcasongfarm.org/biochar-workshop>biochar reseacher Kai Hoffman-Krull </a> for a hands-on, deep dive into the science and applications
of biochar on the farm and homestead.
Camp out at Orcasong Farm for the weekend with meals included.
If anyone on my side of the continent can't make Orcas Island and are interested in Biochar I'll be giving an afternoon talk/hands on session (i.e. talk explaining why you want it/how to use it followed by demo to learn first hand how to make your own) in Maine on May 21st. Details/signup coming soon on the Seacoast NH Permaculture Meetup website. All are very welcome to my home and all will leave with a small sack of Biochar.

It's a pleasure to see superheros taking such an interest in science. And this tiny ad:
