On to the juicy bits.
Biochar training weekend. AKA Full Immersion Biochar Training boot camp.
When someone say from now on “what is Biochar ?”
I can tell you these latest 10 Charmaster’s Apprentices will be the first to tell you all about it. They now have a very unique understanding of biochar.
Photos from the our recent Biochar training weekend.
Marion bringing logs out of the forest. The Biochar training weekend we just had 29th – 30th Nov 2014. Was lots of hard work and lots of great stories.
Look at this grass. Just awaiting a mow. More likely a miss shot.
This was the before shot of the biochar trial plot. It is inside the garden on the hill of abundance.
A couple of fallen plantation trees being rediscovered and cut up.
Lisa carting more logs out of the forest. A great way to get an all over body workout.
Here are some plantation thinning laying on the ground we will turn them into biochar.
Lisa again. Notice the hat and gloves that’s called self responsibility :).

Team work makes for a great experience.
