BioChar Workshop, 8/8

RAFFL

I've been hearing a lot about biochar, the potential for on-farm production and use, and the global implications of its use in addressing climate change.  Here's a workshop in Shoreham on the production and use of biochar. Workshop flyer with details here: GrowersVT_EFF

Grower Gathering: How to Make & Use Biochar sponsored by Carbon-Negative Network Northeast 10am – 4pm, Sunday, August 8 Eagle’s Flight Farm 212 Mt. Independence Road, Orwell, VT www.effarm.com Biochar is the key to a new carbon-negative strategy to sequester carbon, create sustainable soil fertility, grow nutrient-dense crops, produce renewable biofuels, and reverse global climate change. Farmers and gardeners are key leaders in this effort, since the key action is to add charcoal to soil.  This gathering will teach growers simple methods  to acquire biochar and incorporate it in soil.
