We are sad to announce UBET leader Jim Long died on Thursday, January 7 after battling cancer. Jim Long was a founder of the group and an instigator of many great biochar projects in Douglas County. Through his involvement in a large number of community initiatives promoting sustainability and community cohesion, Jim introduced a wide variety of people to the concept of biochar. He inspired and encouraged many volunteers to engage in biochar projects of all kinds. His family hopes his legacy will continue.
There will be a Celebration of Jim's Long Life, on Saturday, January 23rd, from 1:30-3:30 at the Southern Oregon Wine Institute - www.umpqua.edu/sowi
