1-day workshop on the San Juan Island research

Biochar, applied in agricultural soils, stores carbon, retains nutrients & water, increases biological activity, and increases plants' ability to absorb nutrients. Biochar effects on soil carbon stability & biological activity are a foundation of regenerative agriculture, furthering other carbon-farming practices.

FARMWALK will summarize local & international research, and on-farm & forestry production methods to convert woody debris to resource that increases crop resilience in a changing climate.

LOCATION: Finnriver Farm and Cidery, Chimacum, WA
HOST: Kai Hoffman-Krull, Executive Director, Forage, research non-profit for innovative practices in sustainable agriculture

Kai Hoffman-Krull coordinated a 3-year biochar research with San Juan County farms, Univ. of WA & Univ. of Montana, runs a market garden selling produce to local coops & restaurants, was manager of Yale Farm, collaborates with Univ. of Montana students & faculty to publish articles on biochar, soil carbon, nutrient density & crop resilience in our age of climate change.
