We make and use biochar at Tracy Garden. Biochar is an ancient technology that can literally help save the world. You can make it by yourself or with friends. Watch below and learn how.
We are doing a fundraiser to expand our work.
We are asking for support to provide an internship for a UMKC Environmental Studies student. The intern will help promote neighborhood community groups to put and keep carbon in the soil as one means of mitigating climate change. They will prepare biochar and soil inoculants that promote more soil fungal activity. They will teach no-till vegetable growing; the making of mycorrhizal fungi; and the use of cover crops. The intern will help maintain education at Tracy Garden and oversee programs there.
We are trying to weave environmental understanding and awareness into neighborhood community culture, so that it is present in most interactions, thereby keeping it alive. This will lead to action supported by the neighborhood groups.
Here is an older video showing the Jolly Roger method of making biochar:
