Biochar, a highly porous form of charcoal that has been enriching gardens for thousands of years, has recently re-emerged as a soil amendment, similar to mulch and compost. The Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living will host BioChar: What’s That?, a class that explores the history and science of the material, taught by a former science teacher who has a master’s degree in environmental science. Walk-ins welcome. Introductory and intermediate gardeners are encouraged to attend!
