We did it! We raised the money needed to prepare the slash piles for making biochar!
A big thank you to all who contributed. If you would like to purchase some of the biochar in advance, use the donate link below.Can we turn our forestry burn piles into biochar?
Can we add carbon to soils, where it belongs, as we remove it from the atmosphere?
Can we make this restoration activity pay for itself?
|It's a big job, but somebody has got to do it. Please join us!|

We need commitments from at least ten workers who can work several full days making biochar in our kilns Click Here to Volunteer Your TimeDrew Veg Biochar is the name of a fuel reduction project on the Umpqua National Forest, near the town of Drew, Oregon. The US Forest Service conducts many such projects on National Forests every year for the purpose of reducing fire hazard by removing dense stands of younger trees, mostly in plantations and areas that were previously logged. Some of the wood may be big enough to sell to sawmills, but much of it must be piled and burned onsite. This burning produces large amounts of smoke, and the numerous piles burn holes in the forest duff, sterilizing the soil.
We have a better idea and we want to prove it.
