Wilson Biochar Associates announces new Biochar Practice Guidelines

Also: Biochar Spring Planting Sale; Upcoming biochar workshop in Washington; Great Plains Workshop Tour report.

Deliverables from the NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant: On-Farm Production and Use of Biochar for Composting with Manure now available for free download HERE.

During the course of this three year project, we manufactured more than 30 kilns and made about 75 cubic yards of biochar that got used in cattle barns, goat barns, rabbit hutches, chicken coops, horse stables, alpaca barns, worm bins and outhouses. We did many pot trials and several field trials with the resulting biochar composts. We produced a final technical report and a series of Practice Guidelines to help others implement their own projects. Please download these Guidelines and share them widely!

My friends at Oregon Biochar Solutions are now offering their excellent biochar product for only $110/cubic yard. Take advantage of this limited time offer during their Spring Planting Sale. Price is good only for pickup at the White City, Oregon production site. For great deals on larger quantities and truckloads, call (541) 275-1160. Tell them that I sent you! 

Don't miss this upcoming Biochar/Conservation Burn Workshop and Training at Camp Singing Wind in Toledo, Washington, on Saturday, May 5th. The Sonoma Biochar Initiative is partnering with Camp Singing Wind and Cuauhtemoc Villa to present a Biochar/Conservation Burn/Soil Health Workshop and Training to be held from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. on Saturday May 5th in Toledo, Washington. The workshop includes information on biochar as well as the conservation burn technique and how they add to more sustainable on-farm practices. Classroom and hands-on field training will be will cover the theory behind the process, safety and permitting considerations, pile construction, burn management, maximizing production of biochar, and application options.  

Finally, please read my report about my very productive and fun visit to Nebraska and Kansas last month. Many thanks to Heather Nobert and Dave Bruton for organizing the workshops.

Happy Spring and Happy Planting with Biochar!
