Make Your Own Biochar!

  • Urban Homesteading Bootcamp Powell River Powell River, BC Canada (map)

Biochar is a form of charcoal created with high heat in a very low oxygen environment. It has been used for centuries as one of the most effective soil amendments known (ie Terra Preta soils in the Amazon) and is currently being explored around the world as a carbon sequestration strategy. This workshop will lead you through the simple steps of creating your own DIY small scale biochar cooker made from a paint can, a coffee can and a few other items.
