Episode 88: Biochar with Lottie & Connor of Earthly Biochar

This interview features two guests instead of the usual one and those guests are Lottie and Connor, founders of Earthly Biochar. Maybe you already use Biochar in the garden, maybe you’ve heard of it but aren’t quite sure what it does or how it works, or maybe you’re completely new to it as a concept. In any case, I’m sure you’ll learn such a lot from this interview.

We sell only high quality, EBC certified, organic and professionally tested biochar which has been made in a carbon negative process – aka it’s capturing carbon not emitting it! You can learn more about this process in our free guide and webinar, which you can sign up to receive on our website.

Lottie is doing her PhD on biochar at Reading University, working with growers across the UK, and she is recruiting farms (of all sizes and all crops), nurseries and orchards – basically anyone growing plants on a commercial scale – who would like to take part and try biochar out. If you want to take part, please email us!

We’re a growing company with great friends and partners in soil health, horticulture, agriculture and wood management but we’re always looking to meet new people. We have an exciting project coming up, working with tree planting projects in the UK, and we are starting trials with the RHS.  Please get in touch if you want to learn more about us, our plans and opportunities to collaborate.

We share a host of information and tutorials on our Instagram page, so give us a follow and say hi! If you want to learn about the technical production of biochar and the differences between charcoal and biochar, we have written a blog on this on the website. You can also follow us on Twitter.
