Do you have smthg we could read about this, to refresh memory? There is a very credible guy (Gerry Gillespie) in Australia who I believe might be an advocate for biochar, but I'd have to dig out info.

We're co-hosting a Biochar seminar with Phil Marsh on March 18th at Langara, and there's some links posted with the event.

I'll also post some background info tomorrow.

Hey all,

 

TONIGHT,

Phil Marsh will discuss production systems and the science and applications behind Biochar carbon sequestering and nutrient production. Composting can improve poor soils by 66% but by adding biochar poor soils can be improved by 126%. Biochar sequesters carbon from the atmosphere and the final product, when added to soils, can change marginal lands to productive lands in rapid and reasonable amounts of time.


FREE event.

Co-sponsored by BC Biochar, Langara College Contining Studies, Vancouver Peak Oil, and VV.

 

Cheers,

Ross
