Biochar Workshop in Ballarat Nov 2013
BREAZE Inc and CHAF were delighted to host a successful Biochar Workshop in Ballarat in Nov 2013.
Two “rock stars of biochar” flew in from overseas and a leading developer of biochar-making devices made his way from Bendigo with a 2-ton machine. The 33 participants came from near and far – from around the corner and from interstate (one from the Kimberley in WA). Their backgrounds were eclectic – gardeners, farmers, researchers, business owners and government officers.
The Rockstars of Biochar:
|Paul Taylor: Author of “The Biochar Revolution”||Prof Stephen Joseph: Leading Biochar Academic with extensive international experience|
Russell Burnett: Local Commercial Producer of Biochar based near Bendigo

Help fund the Ballarat Region Treegrowers' land restoration film
The Ballarat Region Treegrowers is seeking your help to fund our film promoting the return of native vegetation in rural areas - a plant cover that is not only rich in biodiversity, but also has economic value for local people.
Several philanthropic donors have already provided over half our proposed budget for the film, but we need more to finish it off with style.
Please visit our crowd-sourcing web page ( http://igg.me/at/brtfilm ) that takes donations for the film. You can watch our video 'promo' featuring prominent environmental educator Rob Gell, and see what donation suits you.
Also, please spread the word about our project to friends and colleagues in your workplace, landcare/tree planting group, or conservation organisation through email, Facebook, Twitter and good old-fashioned word-of-mouth.
