Charboy are from Adelaide, South Australia close to the wine regions of Mclaren Vale and the Barossa, and within reach of the natural beauty of the Mount Lofty Ranges. Alex and Georgie first became aware and interested in biochar about 20 years ago. During the first wave of hype following the discovery of its many benefits.
In the years since then, the long-promised biochar revolution failed to eventuate! We wondered – what went wrong?
OK, the biochar community has grown and continues to grow worldwide. But too slowly. Likewise, many reputable studies in the last 20 years confirmed the many benefits. And interest grows to this day.
Yet here is Australia a hobby gardener in 2019 can still go to a garden centre, Bunnings, Mitre 10 stores across Adelaide and not find it on the shelf anywhere.
Charboy was created to remedy this situation. We bring the benefits of a high quality, convenient biochar product to the consumer in a wide variety of product formulations.
The idea is simple. We use modern techniques to formulate biochar for the casual and the serious gardener. Guaranteeing results in the first season of growth. The biochar is packed for easy mail order delivery and easy in-store display. The granules are sized for maximum versatility. The raw material is the highest quality wood waste from primary sources. We only use Australian sources of high purity.
Selling it online, and through a dealership network and wholesale to gardening and home centres, we lead the creation of a new product category for hobby gardeners and horticulturists in Australia. We give our customers a convenient choice for their gardens they currently don’t have. A convenient practical way to use a high-carbon, high-surface area modern biochar available when and where needed.
