Farm biochar flowchart

How does biochar fits into our farm?  I scribbled a flowchart onto paper, and today put it into the computer; it looks like this:

Ideally, it’s a continuously flowing cycle; there is no “waste” and no need for unsustainable inputs; that’s the goal.  The chickens provide meat and eggs to the humans, and poop to the compost cycle; the biochar stabilizes the nutrients in the urine and compost, making them plant-available longer.  You can see how the compost pile is the engine in the middle of everything.
