12 month Biochar Subscription.
- 1 cubic ft of SkyCarbon Biochar every 3 months (to be picked up at APL office)
Produced in Berkeley California from locally sourced walnut shells, our high-temperature biochar is low tar and conductive, which means that it boosts the electron exchange of the microorganisms in your compost pile, allowing you to achieve better temperatures and a faster-composting process. This electron-exchange-boosting capacity is specific only to high-temperature biochar like ours and continues in the soil via increased cation exchange capacity, resulting in higher plant growth rate.
The Biochar also stimulates the production of humic acid so you will have more compost (and less emissions) starting from the same amount of veggie material. All biochars will retain water, so you will be able to save water for irrigating. Addition of biochar to the compost pile has a significant climate impact. Please see our Climate Impact page for more info. This Carbon-Drawdown Subscription has the CO2 sequestration capacity of 480-960kg – that is about what 25-50 trees will capture in a year.
