Carbon Farming & BioChar Workshop

12 August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Learn about Biochar and how to make it with Albert Bates at Highbank Orchards.
Buy your tickets at Eventbrite.

BIOCHAR is an old technology backed up by new science to improve the fertility of soil, retain moisture, increase crop yield and enhance nutrient density. The carbon in biochar resists degradation and can persist in soils for hundreds to thousands of years. Sustainable biochar practices can produce oil and gas byproducts for fuel, providing clean renewable energy. BioChar and bioenergy co-production helps combat global climate change, displacing fossil fuel use and sequestering carbon in stable soil carbon pools. This is a practical MasterClass by Albert Bates, a leading voice on the benefits of BioChar and author of “Carbon Farming and Burn: Using Fire to Cool the Earth”.

Practical demonstration followed by optional lunch.

Cost – €15 + €5 for lunch, or bring your own lunch
