What was the most valuable thing you got out of CSL?
Joy and meeting a wonderful team of like minded people I honestly feel I can confide in without judgement. Friends for life.
Why are you passionate about sustainability? What was the moment or event that made you decide to become a 'change maker' in your field?
When my (unknown to me at the time) Mentor provided a workshop on Biochar at UKI. 2 weeks later he passed in a tragic accident and his energy was dispersed to many people. I felt this energy, harnessed it and have gone through thick and thin to carry his flame, projects missions and Ideas forward whilst at the same time forge my ideas based on his loving memory and principles.
That moment was On Thursday afternoon, 27th August 2009 http://biocharproject.org/charmasters-log/history-of-biocharproject-org/
