Grow, make and use your own homegrown 'branch' charcoal and save money, save energy, Eat Well!

Start off with the seeds to success! We provide 1 free packet of KEFRI certified tree seeds with every jiko, oven or kiln you buy. These should be able to provide you with a lifetime of free woodfuel! 

Transplant the seeds to seedling bags 

Plant the trees and water them with about 1ltr per week for 10 weeks and make sure you keep the GRASS down and the GOATS away! 
Now wait a few years until the tree's are big enough to remove 1 or 2 reasonably thick (2in or 5cm) branches - or you can use bamboo, coconuts, maize cobs even mango seeds! 

Use a Cookswell greencap kiln to make your charcoal (small 30$ large 150$) and you are ready to make your own excellent homemade lumpwood charcoal! 

you can use twigs, fence clippings etc.

if you live by the beech you can make coconut charcoal while you swim!
