Sonoma Biochar Initiative is holding a rare in-depth workshop on permaculture, biochar and soil at Sonoma Garden Park on Wednesday, Sept. 18, and every grower in the Valley is invited to attend.
Two great teachers – bokashi and biochar master Cuauhtemoc Villa and Matt Powers of The Permaculture Student – will get you up to speed on permaculture techniques and how best to prepare and use biochar to improve soil and make it more productive, either commercially or in your backyard garden. Carbon sequestration and other topics will be discussed as well.
Also, Raymond Baltar of Sonoma Biochar Initiative will provide a brief overview of how to make or acquire biochar in any quantity. Khadija Khansia of the Local Carbon Network, a biochar outreach and marketing initiative by All Power Labs in Berkeley, will discuss development of local, distributed networks for biochar and biomass energy production.
The Sonoma Biochar Initiative is a project of Sonoma Ecology Center and is dedicated to the ethical and sustainable production and use of biochar, both locally and worldwide. For more go to http://sonomabiocharinitiative.org.
