BioChar helps save water and retain nutrients. BioChar also helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by stabilizing carbon atoms. The stable carbon atoms become a substrate that is useful in the garden.
Our Biochar is made from softwood-forestry residues. The material has been cooked in such a way that the wood’s carbon atoms lock into place and are now a substrate for microbes, water, and fertilizers to cling to. On a molecular level, Biochar is made up of sheets of Graphene Oxide. The oxygen atoms that are attached to the carbon sheet give it polarity. Polarity allows the sheet to attract and hold onto water and fertilizer. Biochar saves water, fertilizer, and prevents fertilizer run-off.
