Biochar is a form of stable carbon produced from organic matter that represents a practical, localised opportunity for carbon sequestration. It is also tremendously beneficial for soil health. Dr Morphett runs a facility on behalf of the nearby City of Manningham which produces biochar from the municipality’s green waste marketed under the brand “Green Man Char”.

This is the second in the YCAN Climate Solutions Webinar Series and you are most welcome to participate.

Webinar One: The Importance of Soil Health
in a Changing World

During May 2020 YCAN held the first online webinar in our Climate Solutions Series.

Guest speaker Sue Bestow from the Office of the National Soils Advocate spoke to the audience of over 20 people about the potential for improved soil health to revolutionise agriculture and draw-down significant amounts of carbon. Testament to the quality of Sue’s presentation was the very high level of engagement and questions throughout.
