What's New at OVF

What is BioChar and How will it help save water and boost soil fertility?

October 9, 2015

October 10, 2015 Michael Whitman of Blue Sky BioChar will explain biochar, it's history and current promise for soil improvement and water conservation. FREE SAMPLES to all who attend. Also, Michael will be selling this amendment. NOTE: Many researchers recommend using BioChar as an additive to manure, then adding the mixed materials to the soil. This is economical for OVF members due to our access to free manure.
