Antioch University, Seattle, Biochar Workshops

Erin Rasmussen

Antioch University's Seattle campus is hosting two more weekend workshops in making Biochar:

  • November 17 and 18, 2012
  • April 27 and 28, 2013

In the last workshop in August, AUS students and alumni made 6 biochar stoves out of 55 gallon drums.

They used himalayan blackberry and reed canary grass as feedstocks and made some biochar that they use dot amend the soil around several of the cherry trees on the farm. This would be a fun workshop to learn about making and using biochar.
