Berkshire Botanical Garden will present a workshop on biochar in partnership with Berkshire Grown. Biochar is made by heating biomass in the absence of oxygen, makign a highly porous and durable form of carbon that provides habitat for beneficial soil microbes that support vigorous and healthy plants.
This process has been used to improve soils around the globe for thousands of years.

If you ever have wanted to learn more about biochar and its use for both domestic and professional growing, this is your chance. Join the team at Arthur’s Point Farm to learn about its history, various benefits and applications. Participants will also be able to witness first hand on the farm the production of biochar. This is an in-person, off-site program at Arthur’s Point Farm in Ghent N.Y.

Be aware, the garden has financial aid available for all BBG classes.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
