about us


came into being as a result of charmaster Dolph Cooke being completely hypnotised by the late great Biochar granddaddy of Australia Geoff Moxham and the entire new world Geoff had created images of in his presentation of Biochar made at the castle on the hill in UKI NSW Australia.

Dolph Cooke reminisces “I remember saying to my best friend upon reading the advertisement in the echo on Geoff’s workshop. What the hell is Biochar? at which we both laughed as we said we better go find out its only $30.00”

Biochar Project is also involved in setting up the Biochar Industries at Kunghur NSW Australia and this is where the current headquarters are based.

    I like your goals, been making biochar in a reused metal drum. Stumbled on some info from Japan- they made charcol in firepits dug in the ground. When my drum [dies], I am going to dig one.
    Good lock, Helen

    I am delighted to have found this biochar community. I am a masonry heater builder and farmer in South Carolina (USA) dealing with worn out soil and limited means as well as physical disability from a stroke. We have an abundance of surplus firewood created by recent storms in our heavily wooded part of the state. I already have an outdoor “rocket heater” built of salvaged brick which I can modify for pyrolysis and biochar production. The advantage of brick and soapstone (steatite) over metal vessels may be longevity. Our main crop of blueberries requires a low soil PH which could be adversely affected by adding charcoal. So we will begin with the compost bin for our raised bed vegetable gardens to try our hand at “terra forming.”
