Free Biochar Workshop
March 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Learn how to make your own biochar in your own backyard. Biochar is charcoal used as a soil amendment for both carbon sequestration and soil health benefits. Biochar mitigates global warming and climate change. Biochar increases soil fertility of acidic soils (low pH soils), increases agricultural productivity, and provides protection against some foliar and soil-borne diseases. It is considered the miracle cure for global warming.
You can turn your backyard burn pile into this soil enhancer that lasts forever and costs you nothing but a match and some time. Join us as we create biochar for Shanti Permaculture Farm and send you home with your own bag. Biochar is also available for sale in our Farm Stand until it sells out!
