03. On The Farm: A Biochar Biography (eBook)



This eBook is chapter 3 in the book The Biochar Revolution. It is a beautiful story of how Bob Wells, a former boat salesman turned an overgrown, infertile piece of land into a fertile organic farm, and the role biochar played.

“a nagging thought kept haunting my subconscious that this biochar stuff was just too good to be true. But I kept getting great results wherever and however I applied it.”

This eBook is a real story, a story of how biochar can have a real positive impact at a local level and therefore at a global level. Given it is a real story, it is also a great read and a story of hope.

The eBook takes you through Bob Wells and his wife’s experience of rejuvenating what was basically an infertile plot of land, transforming it into a viable local organic farm. It describes the type of soil Bob had for use on his plot, they process he undertook of testing biochar and then applying it to his land, and the impact this had on his crop output.

Bob’s thoughts at the end of his e-Book are quite inspiring as he looks at all angles of the technology. This includes topics from the financial gains he can make from the application o biochar, to the long term legacy his activities are leaving. Its a great read for gardeners and farmers alike.
