Ana: maybe this will help
If it's not from treated or pallet wood, the charred wood and ashes can be used in your garden.
Hi Ana. I'm Cindy. Ashes make great fertilizer for your garden and flower beds. I put all the ashes from our fireplace in my garden, all year round.
If untreated natural wood, use it to grill with. Who doesn't love a great bbq? What type of wood are you burning?
We sprinkle the wood ashes from our wood stove on our grape vines. You could compost it if the pieces are small enough.
If your neighbors have flower beds or gardens they might like them. Some municipalities will pick up ashes, sift them and use them in the winter for roads. Local municipalities around here do.

Hi Ana, you can use the ash to deter pests like slug, and cut worms from your garden
And here are some uses for the charcoal, hope they help you out
You could add it to standing water to keep it fresh. You could maybe use it to draw with once you wash and dry it and get rid off the loose stuff. You could use it on a barbeque to cook with. Enjoy!

Hi Ana, we mix it into compost at a 50/50 ratio and work it into the soil. It's great for improving drainage and retaining moisture in the soil. Our pots plants love it.
Do you have an animals that are outside? I use the ash for my chickens' dust bath, and for the dogs to roll in. It helps prevent fleas, mites and poultry lice. Its good for the wild birds to dust bathe in too.
