Biochar, food forest and fruit tree workshop

6 March @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Do you know about BioChar? Have you heard of the amazing benefits to the soil and the atmosphere due to it’s incredible ‘draw down’ properties?  Come and be amazed by all the information Azain has to share about Bio-Char.

See a demonstration of Bio Char production.

Do you know how to make a Food Forest? What is important to know will be revealed by the vast knowledge Graeme George PYV is going to share in the Food Forest Workshop.

Graeme will then inform us as to what varieties are likely to thrive on our Mountain, and how to care for them in the best way.

These workshops have been made possible by the generous funding from Yarra Ranges Council- we thank you.
