Earth-friendly!

Maccy Biochar operates a not for profit community biochar centre in Macclesfield, South Australia. We take your dead woody material and convert it to biochar to use as the basis for earth-friendly fertilizers for home and farm; and for other biochar-based products. Buy our bulk biochar to help us to draw down carbon and improve your soil. You may either use the Order Form below or contact us directly.

The Power of Soil

At maccybiochar we recognise that the properties of our soil will determine what and how much we can grow in it. We aim to help you make your soils 'happier', richer and more productive. This image of a particle of biochar showing its amazing number of micro-pores demonstrates why biochar is able to hold so much moisture in the soil together with soluble nutrients needed by plants to thrive. These pores also provide habitat for microscopic life forms that interact with the roots of plants and help sustain them.       

Young Explorers

At maccybiochar we encourage

young people to learn more about the carbon cycle and how to capture carbon for the soil. We can provide your school with advice and instructions on making your own biochar kiln to help make your school carbon neutral. CALL US to arrange for a volunteer to visit you.
