Sprin­kle some good­ness

Biochar is an eco-friendly char­coal that can be dug into your soil to en­hance its fer­til­ity and wa­ter re­ten­tion. In a 40-acre wood­land site in East Sus­sex, com­mu­nity-owned en­vi­ron­men­tal group Sa­cred Earth is mak­ing it in small, ready-touse batches. Added in­gre­di­ents in­clude com­frey tea, worm casts and sea­weed. The biochar comes in a com­postable box and liner and, be­cause it is freshly made, Sa­cred Earth rec­om­mends us­ing it within two weeks of re­ceipt. It costs £9.99 for 3kg (sa­cre­dearth­land.co.uk).
