The Mt. Barker Community Garden recently welcomed me to their Duck Flat site to demonstrate making biochar using a Maccy Kon-Tiki flame-cap style kiln. We successfully made a barrow load of biochar from 5 (or what is it 6?) barrow loads of tree litter that would otherwise have been mulched using their power mulching machine. The biochar wil be used in their potting soil and also in the compost heaps that the garden manages.

Members were impressed with the ease and simplicity of this method of making biochar.
