Yesterday the garden instructor and a student took a trip to Eastwood Elementary School to teach some of the fifth grade students about Bio-char and its effects on an experiment we are currently conducting.

We are conducting an experiment on lemon basil plants where we have 20 plants half with bio-char and half without. We are studying the effects on growth and moisture levels. The Eastwood fifth graders where taught about the general effects of bio-char, how to make it and our findings in this experiment.
