DIY Biochar. Know it. Make it. Use it.

Jackson County

Friday, March 16, 2018 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

This half-day workshop covers the basics of Do-it-yourself biochar production. We’ll start inside for an overview presentation and then head outside to a demonstration. Bring a sack lunch to enjoy around the bonfire – and stay to the end to take home a small bag of biochar!


Topics: Basic biochar science; Biochar applications – compost, manure management, farms, trees, gardens; Biochar and the carbon cycle; How to make your own biochar;  Demonstration of biochar kiln.
