Biochar Fertilizer in My Garden

by Roy
(Park Hill, Okla)

I am interested in biochar as a fertilizer for my garden. I was wondering if anyone here had any thoughts on the subject? Have you used it to fertilize your gardens? I find it a challenge to figure out home much to use in my garden. I am just doing trial and error right now.

Another Question for Judith – Our BioChar Expert
by: Compost Junkie Dave

Hi Roy,

This is the second BioChar-related question we’ve received this week. Luckily, we have a fellow tribe member, Judith, who is an expert in the BioChar field.

I was in touch with her earlier today, and she has informed me that she’ll be making a post on our site later this week. Very exciting, eh?

Until then, please sit tight.

Sorry about the delay Roy. Judith hasn’t forgotten about us, she’s just working really hard to get various aspects of her own business set-up, so she’s short on time at this moment. Today, she wrote to me and asked that we sit tight for a few more days. I grudgingly accepted her offer. 🙂

As promised, Judith our BioChar expert, came through for us. Please check out the video and information she posted to another question on our site about biochar and compost tea. I think this information should help answer some of your questions Roy.
