    HI Angelo: Look like Charlie Si is organizing a Biochar workshop down there in Feb or April. Would be a good time to connect with you, include your network in the workshop announcements.

    If you want to see an awesome example of a permaculture garden, micro climates and just how much you can achieve in a tiny suburban back yard then PLEASE visit Angelo’s garden. I went last year and can’t begin to tell you how blown my mind was and still is over everything he has squeezed in to his garden.
