Meeting September 13 – 9:30 – What Every Gardener Should Know About BioChar

Join us for an inspiring presentation on biochar by Jon Nilsson, soil scientist of 25 years and founder of Char-Grow, where the biochar is produced in the Mills River area. Jon has also worked over 20 years as a compost consultant. Jon will help us understand what biochar is, how to use biochar for long term enhancement of soil health and garden productivity while reducing watering  and sequestering carbon. He will bring samples to pass around and a choice of info-sheets on aspects of this topic.
