Biochar Workshop, Hosted by Tualatin SWCD

Learn how charred biomass (biochar) can increase soil productivity, reduce wildfire risk, and slow climate change. Biochar consultant Kelpie Wilson will provide a history and science of biochar (Day 1 – Classroom Session) followed by a demonstration of how to make biochar from your burn piles using a simple “flame cap kiln” (Day 2 – Outdoor Session). She will also share methods for using biochar in compost and in animal barns to recover nutrients for use in soil. This free, 2-day workshop is open to anyone curious about biochar, including arborists, foresters, natural resource professionals, farmers, and residents.

This is a free, two-day workshop that includes hands-on activities. You have the option to sign up for just one of the workshop days if that’s what best suits your schedule.
