Description

Join us at Stonehedge as we welcome Dale Hendricks and his Presentation and Workshop on Biochar..

10am-Noon: Soil, Carbon, Climate and Biochar- the Rest of the Story: A deep dive into living- and breathing- soils and the dazzling and interconnected Solar driven, plant mediated health enhancing and climate stabilizing (often..) Carbon cycle. How can we as gardeners, farmers and permaculturalists most productively engage? What roles do life and diverse perennial plant systems play in building carbon in the soil? What is the “Liquid Carbon pathway”?? What is biochar? How can it be made and prepared? Can we do other productive things with the energy? How is it being used with tree establishment?

Noon-1pm - Lunch Break

1pm-4pm: Biochar making demonstration and continued discussion: We’ll fire up a small clean burning biochar making cookstove and a few additional “open burn” techniques including a “Conservation burn”, a specially stacked/top lit/open burn technique and a “pyramid kiln”(aka a flame cap) that offers a great way to clean up brush, cook or just hangout. We feel it’s important to demystify the biochar making process by showing several quite different ways of producing it
