Letter to the editor: Saratoga Biochar is good for area

WRITTEN BY Bill Austin, Moreau, organizer – Plumbers & Steamfitters UA Local 773

As a resident of Moreau and as a representative for labor, I fully support the Saratoga Biochar project. Not only will they be creating good-paying jobs with benefits right here in our area which will employ our friends, families and neighbors, but they’ll be producing an environmentally beneficial product. In addition to putting carbon back into the soil and not the atmosphere, their carbon fertilizer is a safe substitute for harmful chemical fertilizers that already pollute our waterways.
