This book provides a great insight into using the biochar to create a nutrient rich soil for your garden. There is a lot of background information on the origins of farming with biochar, how biochar works to enrich your soil and the science behind biochar’s amazing abilities. It also shows you how to make biochar using a converted oil drum, something you don’t have to go to the hassle of doing if you have a Tawi!
