The differences between biochars

Application rates
How and where to apply it in your operations
Observations on how biochar improves cannabis and why so many soil companies have started adding biochar to their products
Where you can purchase high carbon, locally made biochar in Mendocino County.

There is a large amount of misinformation about biochar on the web  we will help you cut through the hype.

Learn from two biochar veterans that have been involved in different aspects of the biochar industry for years:

Raymond Baltar, the Director of the Sonoma Biochar Initiative and Biochar Project Manager for both Sonoma Ecology Center and the Redwood Forest Foundation, has been involved with biochar education and policy initiatives since 2009. He manages the Redwood Forest Foundations biochar production facility in Piercy, CA, as well as a major Department of Water Resources biochar grant project for Sonoma Ecology Center that seeks to measure biochars ability to save farmers water and nutrients.

Cuauhtemoc Villa manages the agronomic operations of a large, legal cannabis farm in Oregon and is a teacher, entrepreneur, and soil consultant. He has been using biochar as a soil amenendment in cannabis and traditional farming settings for years. He brings a wealth of practical knowledge and cannabis-specific advice regarding biochar and soil microbiology, and has some significant observations regarding terpenes and plant growth improvements that he will share.

Tickets for this event are just $20 and available here or at the door.
