Organic biochar brings resilience to soil and plants.

Soil Longevity with
Carbon Culturing 

According to the UN, we have less than 60 harvests left until we have depleted all our soils. Topsoil  feeds 95% of humanity, and we are losing hundreds of billions of dollars worth of it annually. Deposits of carbon in our soil measure three times the entire ocean carbon sink. It’s time we start understanding the precious resource beneath our feet.

Converting carbon to a solid, stable form keeps it from escaping back into the atmosphere for hundreds of years. By converting any biomass waste in any location, we can rapidly start to redirect millions of tons of carbon out of the atmosphere and put it to use in the soil, where it can help prevent soil from degrading, foster natural soil micro-organisms and help prevent the loss of livelihoods.

 
 

 
 

Key benefits of using biochar

  • Soil regeneration

  • Naturally boost agricultural crop yields

  • Crop resilience

  • Reduce chemical fertilizer and pesticide use 

  • Retain nutrients in the soil 

  • Reduce water consumption

  • Improve soil tilth

Biochar to heal the soil

Biochar in soil helps the natural “soil microbiome”, or soil life, find new area and better structure in soil. Carbon is a part of the soil organic matter, and it brings new surface area and better structure for the soil life to thrive in. This soil life is the most crucial ecosystem to keep going – and biochar can help it naturally thrive.

A healthy soil has a thriving bacterial and fungal population to help crops with nutrient exchange and keep the plants alive and well. This natural soil microbiome enjoys the new surface area that the biochar brings, with the improved aeration and gas exchange. The carbon also helps in the cation exchange capacity of the soil – in essence, the way the soil regenerates. Thanks to the biochar’s surface area and porosity, it has a uniquely high capability to absorb water and nutrients.

In built soils, the biochar helps simulate a natural environment. It improves the structure and content of the soil for the soil life.

 
 

 
 

How to use biochar in soil

  1. Mix the biochar with nutrients 
    Many benefits arise from adding nutrients to biochar prior to adding it to the soil – specifically in odor reduction and microbes populating the biochar beforehand

  2. Let it sit while it brews compost 
    You get a break too!

  3. Add to the soil 
    Just like you’d use any other soil amendment
