“The environmental, social, and moral costs of modern agriculture are clearly explained in this deeply personal film…an engrossing documentary.”

Coming to Forest Grove… BIOCHAR!

A BIOCHAR WORKSHOP to help increase nutrition available through your soil to your crops and garden plants.


Tuesday, December 3, 2013 from 3 to 5 pm, our presenter will be Jim Karnofski, owner and chemist from BioCharm Farm in Ilwaco, Washington.


“My soil talk is all about providing the ideal habitat for soil microbiology which is the only way to produce excellent quality of nutrient dense vegetables and feed. The proper care of soil fertility is the human answer to ideal health and wellness. I teach what I consider the fundamental basics of soil fertility with the use of custom mineral fertilizers and biochar.”
