I'm also doing a demo of home- and farm-scale budget biochar methods in my hometown, Lusby, MD on 21 March 2015. Anyone with a biochar-making device is welcome to request space to join.



Aloha Kelpie,
I enjoyed the day with you and others, many with Maui connections too. Very informative and a great combination between lecture, hands-on and the ability to talk among each other and benefit from all the knowledge everyone brought to the day. Look forward to more such events.
