Biochar Workshop

  • Hunt Country Vineyards 4021 Italy Hill Rd Branchport, NY, 14418 United States (map)

We're excited to be hosting another biochar workshop again this year! The one-day event will provide education on the production of biochar (i.e. carbonized organic material), feedstocks, and uses. It will include an indoor overview of the benefits and uses as well as an outdoor, hands-on production demonstration. Sessions will be led by Kathleen Draper, of the Ithaka Institute, Finger Lakes Biochar, and the International Biochar Insitute. Other regional researchers and entrepreneurs in the biochar field will be in attendance to contribute their expertise.  
The workshop will take place right here at the winery from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm (plus Happy Hour afterwards) on Saturday, May 11th. The cost of the workshop is $35 for pre-registration or $40 at the door. The day will include a lunch prepared by Chef Kasey, as well as a tour and discussion of the sustainable energy and agricultural practices we use on the winery/farm, led by Suzanne Hunt. Kathleen's new book, "Burn: Using Fire to Cool the Earth", will be  available for purchase. Click here for more information.
