PCC Library features Dr. Trisha Jackson: Gardening with Biochar on Feb. 10

19 January 2017

Linda Hunt Memorial Library invites PCC students, employees and community members to attend guest speaker Dr. Trisha Jackson, a PCC science instructor, on her discussion of biochar.

Among other uses, biochar may be added to soils to improve the function of the soil ecosystem. Jackson will speak not only about the Amazonian origins and special characteristics of biochar but also how everyone can benefit from using it to make their crops and plants thrive.

Jackson received her PhD in Geography from the University of Kansas in 2011 and attributes her discovery and passion of biochar from an advisor at KU who was researching biochar’s effects on soil in the Amazon. Jackson, who has been at PCC since 2015, currently teaches three classes on campus.

Bring your lunch and enjoy the conversation of biochar, Friday, Feb. 10 at 12 p.m. Jackson’s Biochar, part two, will be held Friday, Mar. 10 at 12 p.m.

For more information on these sessions please contact the PCC Library at 620-450-2172 or swagner@prattcc.edu.
