Making and using Wood Chip Mulch
Also called brown gold by american gardeners or RCW mulch, ramial chipped wood or RCW is used in agriculture or horticulture. They come from fragmentation by mechanical milling branches (chipped branch-wood).

The ramial chipped wood can stimulate biological activity in the soil and are very effective as mulch. By composting, the RCW is transformed into humus. So you can recreate your soil and make it rich in micro-organisms. Living soil is the best way to take care of your garden plants ! It's common practice for Permaculture in USA.
