The Big Biochar Experiment.

Nikky's results on beetroots: yields were an astonishing 70.6% higher in the biochar plot. Neither biochar nor control plot were fertilized, in both cases, the seeds were grown on Growmore.

The Dorset Charcoal Company recently supplied Kew Gardens in London, and two large market garden enterprises in Dorset with large amounts of Biochar.

Horticultural Charcoal has been in use for milenia, but much of that knowledge has been lost in modern times. You can get involved with the Big Biochar Experiment and help study the amazing benefits that Biochar can bring to soil and crop improvement.

You don't need much space and it's a great project for children, so get involved.
