Biochar Workshop & Discussion Group




It is my intention is to do a Biochar burn on Sun the 1st, Sat the 7th, OR Sun the 8th of November, and I invite anyone interested in Biochar, the process or use, and/or that is willing to contribute their knowledge to attend.

The day will proceed no later than 10am with a preliminary insight into my experiences to-date, followed by hands-on Biochar generation, a process that will continue for something like 5 Hrs. During this extended period, discussion, input and questions relating to methods, results and use will be expressly welcomed.

For those that do not access the initial presentation, a handout will be available and there will be a record maintained of questions, answers and points of discussion.

With the forecast literally changing by the hour, the day of the event is yet to be confirmed. Fortunately or unfortunately, to support the undertaking it cannot be raining, underfoot conditions need to be dry, and wind activity needs to be low, the day preferably cooler.

Covid 19 requirements must be respected, with the wearing of masks and the maintaining of social distancing. It is possible that no more than 10 people will be able to attend at a given time, so dependent on numbers, attendance may have to be staggered. Phoning in before your arrival will be preferred.

I ask that anyone interested register with me, indicating which of the days they anticipate they will be able to attend, and I will provide confirmation of the date as soon as I can.

The event is in the open at a location a few minutes west of Bairnsdale, with anyone registering receiving additional directions.

BYO food, drink, seating, gloves and face shield as desired or required. A toilet will be made available.
