Biochar is a 2,000 year old practice of supplementation for plants.

It is made from charcoal powder mixed with liquid goodies like worm tea.

The benefits are:-

* soil enhancing - holding carbon, retaining nutrients and water

* food security boosting

* increasing soil biodiversity

* discouraging deforestation

Love the photo of the flame issuing from the air-hole. Marvellous fire activity. Do you do anything to show children about sustainability? (I know, I know - health and safety!)
