SeaChar May 21 Biochar Workshop
Stove Building Workshop
May 21st, 2011
Join SeaChar and the staff at West Seattle's Village Green Perennial Nursery
for a very special event
Saturday May 21st, 10am -6pm at the Village Green Perennial Nursery
Biochar is charcoal created from dry organic waste materials. Amended to our soils it gives all of us a way to combat climate change by storing long lasting fixed carbon in our gardens or yards. Learn how to make your garden carbon negative and climate friendly, while building healthy soil.
For a $45 donation build and take home a five gallon "GARDEN MASTER Stove".
This gardener's version of our "ESTUFA FINCA" Central America cook-stove, makes clean heat and soil building biochar from your garden and yard wastes.
All tools and materials for building this stove will be provided.
- • Along with building stoves, we will be learning about how biochar works and how to use biochar in the garden
- • This will also be fundraiser for the "Farm Stove Project" . Learn how this clean burning, biochar-making technology can build opportunities for woman, fight climate change and save lives and trees
- • Bring a lunch, a pair of gloves and if possible a pair of safety glasses. If you have metal cutting tools or needle nose pliers, bring them along!
- • This will be a full day workshop. Everyone will have fun and everyone will be going home with a tested stove and an expanded understanding of biochar. We will end the day by testing our new creations.
We are requesting a $25 materials deposit from those who wish
to build a 5-gallon "GARDEN MASTER Stove"
