Michael Wittman

Pasadena Grows, Pasadena Public Library’s Hill Avenue Branch gardening club, will host a program on biochar on Saturday, March 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon at 55 S. Hill Avenue. Biochar, a high carbon content and porous composition helps to improve your soil, enhancing the nutrient availability and enabling the soil to retain water and nutrients longer, all while helping to combat global climate change. Participants will learn how to make it from brush and other hard-to-compost organic material.

Presented by Michael Wittman, founder of Third Planet Energy, Inc., a California biofuel company and The Blue Sky Enterprise, an alternative energy consultation and supply company.
