Free Biochar Workshop
I will presenting an informal talk and workshop on Biochar on the 4th February.
"Barry Batchelor is a Sunshine Coast trained Permaculture designer who runs and owns Black Earth Products. Australia’s first company to produce and supply Biochar for the backyard gardener. Barry will talk about the history, present and future of Biochar production. It’s use in organic gardens, blending with composts and liquid nutrient biological teas. Barry will also cover how to make a low emission Biochar gasifier, Barry has developed as an open source style project so other Biochar enthusiasts can cleanly make their own Biochar."
I will have some Biochar and BiocharMax for sale. I will also have 25 litre bags of my awesome new Biochar compost blend. If you are interested in bulk 200 litres drums of any of these product contact me before the workshop on 07 3886 6712 or message me on my website www.blackearthproducts.com.au
