Thanks so much for putting up what sounds like a fantastic event, and sorry I missed it. It seems you support the idea of open source information which is great, but i am still struggling how to engage with available information on biochar and to participate in something like a on line forum of some sort. I am a bit surprised I did not see this mentioned on either the local homegrown guild listserv or from any of the local Transition folks, unless I missed it. Also it would have been great if there were some recording of with this event of the biochar conference from a couple of years ago. Please let me know if there might be another, or whether a conference a little further east might be a possibility.
