    I am looking at cardboard box composting method by Hiroko Tabuchi

    The Compost by My Couch: How (and Why) I Started an Odorless Bin at Home

    However, I am stumped in finding coco peat and biochar (or rice husk ash, called "Kuntan" in Japanese). Is coco peat just the same as coco coir bricks? Also how may I possibly find biochar (or kuntan for that matter) in Vancouver?

    And for the ones who had already tried this, can I replace coco peat with peat moss?
