TUNE IN: Wildoak Living Mon March 17 at 9am: Future of our libraries - Bookstore CSA - Biochar
Tune in to WILDOAK LIVING, the radio program about living sustainably and building community
in Mendocino County and beyond.
On Monday, March 17, at 9:00 AM Pacific Time:
Envisioning the future of our libraries - Community Supported Bookstore - Biochar
I will also talk with Christie Olson Day, owner of Gallery Bookshop in Mendocino, about the idea of a community supported bookstore, similar to a local food CSA.
And I will share some information about an upcoming workshop about making biochar as a viable alternative to agricultural burning. The new Sonoma County Biochar Project is intended to prove locally available research results from elsewhere that biochar will build soil, conserve water, improve agricultural productivity, and improve forest practices — all while replacing greenhouse gas emissions with sequestered carbon in individual farming operations. Replacing conventional open burn methods with a conservation burn can significantly reduce emissions (visible smoke and invisible chemicals and particles) from agricultural burns and conserve resources, especially carbon. This workshop will show how to produce biochar, a valuable soil amendment, in the process.
