Out of fire, into earth, and supporting new life and growth! Biochar is charred carbonaceous material that can be made (and used) in your own backyard. All you need is scrap woody feedstock such as fallen branches. Biochar enriches and regenerates soil. Biochar can greatly increase productivity of your garden. The use of biochar can also help to sequester atmospheric carbon.
Karl Kaufman is showing us a simple way to produce biochar in a pit.
See how it’s done! Participate in making biochar in a pit on-site.
Learn how to use it in your garden.
Learn about the environmental benefits.
Take home some biochar with you at the end.
