⬛️ Biochar

Here is biochar: activated charcoal available to be added to compost.

Biochar is often produced from burning 🪵 wood in 🔥 fire pits.

By adding “#biochar” to any ComPost, such as a 🥗 compost pile,🪣 compost bin, 🚽 composting toilet, 💚 compost deposit, or 💩 commit, you increase the soil’s capacity to support biodiversity.

L’s Nursery

I am a fruitarian, a style of life where one handles a lot of seeds.

I would like more fruit trees in the world.

I plant the seeds in pots of mixed biochar soils and chart them on PlantDiary.

I give the rest away, with biochar soil, to provide others with fruit trees.

I believe everyone should have fruit trees.

Join me for Garden Day at Lupin Lodge!

Proposal: 🌿 Central Park

Residents of Central Park area have expressed interest in incorporating more plants into Central Park.

To start, I recommend building biochar compost at The Clearing to amend the dry top soil here.

The regions blocked in orange are recommended as vegetable gardens

The various shades of green represent fruit trees and understory flowering plants.

The sections with blue represent suggested campsites, parking spaces, and picnic tables.

Developing Central Park into a lush garden would improve the image of the entrance to Lupin Lodge.
