Great article about the benefits of Bio-char in the garden.

Amazonian Dark Earths Using only their hands, sticks and stone axes, Amazonian tribes grew cassava, corn and numerous tree fruits in soil made rich with compost, mulch and smoldered plant matter. Amazingly, these “dark earths” persist today as a testament to an ancient soil-building method you can use in your garden.
You can increase your garden soils fertility by adding BIOCHAR. This soil-enhancing ingredient has been made for thousands of years in the Amazon. You can make it in your own garden by partially burning woody brush, making a kind of charcoal.
BioChar - the new 3,000 year ancient soil building technique. Just be sure to watch the staged burn (in the trench) so it burns SLOWLY.
You can increase your garden soil fertility by adding biochar. This soil-enhancing ingredient has been made for thousands of years in the Amazon.To make biochar, pile up woody debris in a shallow pit in a garden bed. Burn the brush until the smoke tins and then damp-down the fire by covering it with about an inch of soil. Let it smolder until the brush is charred, then put the fire out.

Start with layer of coarse organic material, straw, leaves or prunings at the bottom. Add layer of nitrogen-rich green material followed by layer of carbon-rich brown material, until the bin is full. Turn and stir your compost weekly for oxygen. Water compost bin frequently, to keep moist as a wrung-out sponge. In 12-18 months, material at the bottom and middle of the bin should be composted for your garden. Chopping material can speed process. Aeration is key to successful composting
