Would this result in monoculture on steroids? If the soil and atmosphere are enhanced, would the only downside be displaced animal life? Hmmm....
Aren't Permies, PRI, etc. a form of P2P open source 'technology' sharing?
(btw, I wonder if miscanthus g. has been patented yet!)
Is there a how-to anyone knows of for backyard-scale biochar production? This is a bit of a stretch, but I'd like a trailer-sized biochar kiln that will take the 2'x3.5' pallets (untreated) that we end up throwing out for lack of space. I do use some for hugelkultur, but biochar lets me use more, and get more out of them.
I was also wondering if anyone knows about the potential for using a kiln to turn human waste into biochar as a way to treat it for agricultural use. Would that make it safe for use on food plants?
