There's a biochar workshop on April 27-28 from 9-4:00 in Woodinville. It only costs $35, and you'll get to take home a biochar stove of your own which can be used on your farm. The flyer is attached.
It is hosted at Morethana Farm which is located in Woodinville next to 21 Acres. The farm is co-leased by Antioch University, Pacific Bamboo Resources, and SeaChar, and the goal of the farm is to become a permaculture education center.
