Biochar: Black is the New Green! • Douglas County

Friday, Apr 5th, 2019 @ 12-3:30pm
Lawrence Hidden Valley Camp • 3420 Bob Billings Pkwy • Lawrence, KS • Map

Biochar is a new term for the ancient concept of creating charcoal that can used in all sorts of agricultural and horticultural applications, for the benefit of the earth. At this FREE hands-on workshop, learn all about biochar: what it is, how to make it, and how to use it AND, how to turn your invasive woody shrub and cedar tree problems into an environmental benefit! At Hidden Valley, we are slowly but surely getting rid of the invasive shrub honeysuckle, and turning it into biochar, which we then use in our native woods restorations, streambank erosion control, urban stream water quality sampling, and more. By stabilizing the carbon from burning woody biomass into charcoal, you are also sequestering carbon for years to come.
Space is limited and advance registration is required. To register, visit: https://biochar2019.eventbrite
Rain date is April 12.

Parking is also limited...please carpool if you can. Wear comfortable clothing, totally enclosed shoes, and protect from sun and bugs. Hidden Valley is a semi-primitive camp, and chairs are not provided! A tour is included to showcase how we are using and experimenting with biochar. This event is made possible through a grant from the Great Plains Biochar Initiative.
