Basics of Biochar: Save The World With Sticks
October 6, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The White Lake Community Climate Action Council will host Wiley Fry, local permaculture gardener and charcoal maker, for an introduction to biochar for carbon sequestration at the White Lake Community Library on Thursday, October 6, from 6-7pm. Fry will discuss the basics of what biochar is, why it’s such a great tool for carbon drawdown, and the science behind making it.
A recent rediscovery, biochar is like charcoal, but much cleaner. The Indigenous people of the Amazon River basin added burned organic waste to their farmlands 2,000 years ago. The rich soil they created produces record-setting crops to this day.
