Can you show us how you design this stove?I love that i looks small and cosy.
Did you follow Peter Van de Berg's design with the batch box and the bell or you improvise it on your own?

How much space in your house does your 4inch batch heats up?
What do you mean by double chamber bell?Do you make one bell that is being divided on the inside by a wall?

It is not a rule that mulch locks moisture.This happens only when you already have a strong soil full of life and lots of rain.
Lots of mulch and lots of compost actually can dehydrate the top layer of the soil. When you experience drought ,the wood acts as a spongue
draining the moisture out of the top layer.If you have minimal rain and lots of mulch,the rain will not even reach the soil layer to hydrate it.
It seems that a small layer of mulch and trying to boost soil life would be the best bet.Of course cover crops are so natural looking and you build soil via chopping and dropping
the upper part and leaving the roots to compost.Look at nature ,how much biomass do fall leaves or weeds bring back to the soil.It is a gradual small layer,not creating mulch towers.
That being said if you build soil life with wood chips,then because the soil organisms have a lot of moisture you counteract the wood acting as a spongue and draining the soil.
To me it seems that soil roots activate the soil,so whatever you do try to plant and plant and plant.

I don't understand why people say this weed leaves biomass to the ground.I think the mulch of oxalis is very watery and gets evaporated leaving just thin strands,very very minimal organic matter.In the same  time it conquers most of other weed positions that leave something back to the garden and have great roots.

newspaper template

I don't think a blog is what i was describing.Blogs are like one page articles.What i need is the format of a newspaper.In every page each person can share their thoughts about problems of the region and proposal of solutions.Also people can share if they sell their homegrown eggs,if they accept the grass clippings of others for their chicken(for waste management) ,events about cleaning of the beach etc.You get the idea.I just need it to be like newspaper.
