Virtual: Farmers Guide & Crowdfund Launch




Join us VIRTUALLY at the launch of A Farmers Guide to the Production, use, and Application of biochar as well as ANZBIG’s Kickstarter Crowdfund Campaign. 

ANZBIG is seeking to raise $300,000 in 90 days, which is 10% of its aspirational roadmap budget of $3 Million for the 24/25 Financial period. You can download our crowdfund prospectus and get involved before June 30.


The publication collects the experience of people – gardener, farmers and researchers – who have made and used biochar to produce food crops in home gardens, smallholdings and farms in many countries around the world. It draws on the collective wisdom of people who have used biochar for centuries, on innovations developed in the last 100 years and on the latest scientific research.

Authors Professor Stephen Joseph and Dr Paul Taylor will run through the guide and talk to the production of a farmers manual in 2024/25 financial year.
