I am now selling biochar at the San Juan Island Farmers Market.
The charcoal is produced from pruning and thinning of the forest at Thornbush, and then “charged” with comfrey tea to produce biochar.
The comfrey can be harvested several times each summer. The plants regrow with great vigor and provide more nutrient-rick leaves in just a few weeks.
I am clearing brush and crowded trees from the forest to create space for planting more timber trees. The resulting “woody biomass” is used to heat the house in a way that leaves a lot of useful charcoal behind.
See you all at the market!
