Katja Degonda, the biochar queen!

Swiss national and MSc student of OPC Switzerland’s President Katja Degonda is fascinated by biochar (charcoal used as a soil amendment). It is a great resource for organic farming, acting like a sponge in the soil, which enhances its capacity to store and release both water and nutrients for plant growth. Katja constructed a biochar production facility on our farm by using two old oil barrels, that’s creativity combined with pragmatism at work! Our farming activities will for sure sustainably benefit from her intervention. Y’edase paaaaaaaaa (we thank you very much)!
