The RAS is an opportunity for an adaptation strategy working towards a more resilient and sustainable future with integrated Carbon removal and offsetting and geometric scaling potential. R&D of the systems could be done in a network of field testers. Maybe help save a dying Planet too.
1.The biochar kiln system
Kon-Tiki 'Rolls'
-alley crops eg.viticulture, agroforestry
-orchards
Kon-Tiki 'Essential'
-stationary kiln in one or many stationary locations
2.Compost system
Johnson-Su modded and simplified (though needs to be tested) with hexagonal vertical star picket formation, Hessian cloth wrapped around the star pickets,  medium milled biochar aquifer supporting 6 vertical 225mm PVC stormwater pipes removed after biomass filling and void filled with unmilled biochar cores.
3.Permafert pits or middens
Built around the compost piles after the composting has completed and star pickets, Rio rod and Hessian cloth are removed for reuse.
4.Tree planting holes for trees
Eg. Biomass, fibre, fruits and nuts

 

5.Zai pits, square or circular
Herbs and vegetables
KTE, Pits are built out from the kiln centre in a keyhole fashion.
After digging a Zai pit and berms are made, add medium milled biochar for the aquifer eg.150mm
Place a 225mm PVC stormwater pipe in the centre of the pit before adding the Permafert around the pipe, on top of the bottom biochar aquifer and up to the top pit level.
Remove the pipe and fill the void with medium milled biochar for biochar cores which serve as irrigation points.
Finish the pit with sculpting a shallow basin for concentrating rainfall and irrigated water to the centre of the pit.

 

6.The Permafert Core Swale

 

Any thoughts about how we can improve the system please send me a message on the contact page. I'll be getting my Kon-Tiki 'Essential' prototype soon and will keep you posted with the initial results.
