Art Donnelly of Seattle Biochar Working Group is teaching a one day class on the principles and practice of biochar production. Students will receive hands-on experience with our 55 gallon J/RO kilns and will perform several burns.
The afternoon session will include biochar sieving, inoculation, and instruction on how to apply it in soil.
Students should bring a sturdy pair of leather gloves and pack their own lunch. Students are also encouraged to bring some of their own dry feedstock with which to experiment.
Come work with Art Donnelly of Seattle Biochar Working Group. He will be producing and processing biochar in (6) 55 gallon drum J/RO biochar kilns and will be available to talk about the specifics of applying biochar in soils.
Please bring some materials to char and lots of questions. If you have a biochar device of your own and want advice or a change to practice, please bring that as well.
