Kaua`i Food Forest in Kalihiwai
Regenerations is excited to present this special workshop featuring visiting Australian biochar expert Paul Taylor, PhD. on Sunday, November 22nd from 10am-4pm at the Kaua`i Food Forest in Kalihiwai.
What exactly is biochar…and why should I know more about it? Biochar is an inexpensive carbon-negative soil amendment that can double your yield while reducing your fertilizer and water needs. This workshop will be of great interest to backyard gardeners, farmers, ranchers, and anybody who wants to learn about biochar. You will learn about: the multiple benefits of biochar, how agriculture can improve the climate and heal the soil, how to build simple devices to make biochar, making biochar/compost/mineral blends and more. Includes a live demonstration of biochar making with fire.
