This Q&A is pulled from a collection of questions posed to me by students of my Online Permaculture Design course (PDC). Learn more with my free four-part Masterclass series, here:


Do you create biochar to include in your systems at Zaytuna Farm? When and how is this type of amending most beneficial? Do you have special biochar producing systems you prefer or are most efficient? Where does the energy audit fall on producing more than token quantities of biochar?
