Biochar is yet another tool in the toolbox of regenerative agriculture! In the last two decades, Biochar has and is receiving more attention because of its benefits to agriculture and of its other uses. This Biochar 2-day Workshop with Gary Gilmore will have both a lecture component and a hands-on component, where attendees will learn how to make an efficient and easy to build Biochar burner, produce biochar during the 2-day Workshop, and learn of a variety of uses of biochar, from producing fuel, to run engines and heat greenhouses, to producing wood vinegar, and more! Whether you are a novice or have some experience, this Biochar 2-day Workshop is for every one! Learning to make biochar on site, for your farms, fields, and gardens, is a wonderfully inexpensive soil amendment, with much potential benefit to receive!
Biochar is a passion for Gary Gilmore, who has 20 years experience working with and producing Biochar and biochar burners. Gary Gilmore has also produced a number YouTube videos showing, for example, a Gravely tractor run on charcoal gasification, making of a biochar burner, and more! Please see the hyperlinks below for these YouTube videos.
