PRESS RELEASE: Making Biochar in your backyard, small farm, forest, or vineyard

The Umpqua Biochar Educational Team (UBET) will demonstrate making Biochar using various types of kilns at the Elkton Community Education Center (ECEC) Thursday April 28 from 9am-2pm at 15850 Hwy 38, Elkton.

Turn your burn pile into a very valuable soil amendment by making Biochar.   The UBET members will demonstrate the proper method of creating Biochar with your backyard tree prunings, vineyard prunings, scotch broom, hawthorne, and other "trash" items.  What is so amazing about Biochar?  It nourishes soils, protects water quality, provides market value to biomass waste, creates energy, reduces Greenhouse Gas emissions and sequesters CO2 for thousands of years.  Don't let your burn pile burn to ash,  but turn it into cash.
