Biochar made from twigs of acacia melanoxylon trees (Tasmanian blackwood) and some from arundo donax (giant reed). Not crushed. Stored in drums or plastic rubbish bags. I have neither time nor expertise to do more than very crude trials of including it in compost, but would be pleased to meet with locals interested in doing further work and advancing the movement.
