Do you know about Bio Char? It's little briquettes of charcoal that may come to the planet's rescue in the nick of time.

Bio-char is an ancient method of enhancing soil fertility and carbon sequestration. It helps the soil retain water and increase crop yields. It enhances microbiological activity. It retains nutrients for plants that would otherwise be lost to the atmosphere, or washed away by rains.

This could represent a key strategy in breaking the cycle of slash and burn farming, and restore our soil.

This video shows you how to make a small, almost smoke free bio char retort.

It is exceptionally well produced, offering great visuals and super clear instructions.

You will need: two barrels, basic tools, no welding necessary. Bio char here is made of sawdust, wood shavings, an old Christmas Tree, and various scraps and chunks of wood.

Farmers and gardeners who have experienced this can not believe the enhanced yields!
