Soil Restoration and Carbon Sequestration using Biochar
The future starts with the dirt beneath our feet. Soil is the earth’s fragile skin that anchors all life. However, half of the topsoil on the planet has been lost in the last 150 years. Soil restoration is a major concern of farmers and of all of us who depend on vegetation.

Aprende las bases de diseño para crear bosques de alimentos: 29 octubre- 1 noviembre
Curso de Introducción al diseño de sistemas agro-forestales (bosques de alimentos) en Permacultura Caña Dulce, finca de 1,5 hectáreas, donde venimos desarrollando un bosque de alimentos desde hace 17 años.
The Noosa Forest Retreat Permaculture course on Australia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast will include the standard “Permaculture Design Certificate” (PDC) curriculum as created by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren This is a globally recognised education course on sustainable living design.
Las Tafetanas - Terra de Sol es un pequeño y modesto proyecto multidisciplinar en el cual, con los recursos que el lugar nos brinda, maderas recicladas, recuperación de basura electrónica, etc., realizamos nuestros proyectos Opensoftware/Openhardware, desde muebles, duchas y estructuras hasta terrazas y aparatos de todo tipo. Asimismo, somos unos apasionados del buen vivir, el agua y el Sol :). De vez en cuando necesitamos ayuda y siempre estamos dispuestos a compartir ideas y conocimientos.
There is enough evidence to prove the existence of a giant European forest very similar to tropical rainforests, long ago. It took some centuries to disappear here, whereas we could see its extinction in just a few decades in the tropics. The recovery of planet life and health implies necessarily to bring back its original green coat, a task that will not be undertaken by any government, since they are all slaves (and masters) of the same interest.
At this workshop we will be taking a glance to the characteristics of this construction material and on the construction techniques used all over the planet. We deal with many tricks and maybe some additives to enhance its characteristics. We will explain all the steps: How to get it, to rate it, to mix it, to use it and to decorate it.
We will be also dealing wit lots of constructive elements and their fabrication with clay: floor, walls, ceilings; seats, ovens and even bathtubs. It is possible to do all of that with clay in a creative way.
