interested in doing an easy gardening method that would produce nutrient dense food?

We could use all the rotting wood to rot in a specific area that would harness the natural cycles to produce great food at very low cost--just a bit of work in the beginning and minor maintenance for decades...  Also, biochar (soaked in microbes) is probably the best single solution for a natural healthy, green lawn--no toxic chemicals required!  No poisoning of the wild turkeys, squirrels, deer and other wildlife (and no one is testing these animals for their levels of toxicity, yet some of us eat them-- ).

Landscapers--this could be a service you offer in landscaping for gardening, but more broadly for BioChar treated yards for safe, natural healthy lawns...

Small farmers or big food producers for family--what about it?  You guys are probably already thinking about how this could improve your food production, provide food for chickens and other birds, and be tremendously nutrient dense and desirable.

Every home owner: This is great for garden production!  Hugelkulture and BioChar

For Hugelkulture see:

Now consider BioChar:

Charred wood, then soaked a few days in mineral and microbe solutions is the best version.



WikiPedia has a good article on BioChar:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biochar

Biochar is a charcoal of sorts that houses microbes to enrich soil and plant growth. The grass in our front yard was enriched and thick for 30 years because in our front yard in 1976 we burned the trees felled to put in Cherokee Trail.  It left ash and partially burned/charred wood which I scattered around the yard, but only the front part of the front yard.  That area is still more fertile and less weedy than the rest of the place:
