“Despite their artistic pretensions, sophistication, and many accomplishments, humans owe their existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”
Think about it. We all depend on the soil. No soil, no food. Know soil, know food. Unfortunately, that six-inch layer of topsoil is more of a precious commodity than many of us realize: it takes about 1,000 years to build 1-2″ of topsoil. And it only takes 30-40 years of “average” modern agricultural practices to destroy it. As Franklin D. Roosevelt put it, “a nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself.”
Soil Reef™ Biochar puts part of the solution in your own hands. Soil building is not just the responsibility of large-scale farmers. Anyone that has a garden or lawn can be part of the citizens movement to Save Our Soils.
The climate debate continues, but there is probably one thing we can all agree on: carbon in the ground is better than carbon in the air. Biochar is made from materials that would ordinarily decompose or burn, releasing carbon into the atmosphere and contributing to pollution. Our soils need carbon; so why not put the carbon back, where it belongs?
Soil Reef™ Biochar is > 85% pure, fixed carbon. The carbon in biochar is very stable and will remain in the soil for hundreds or even thousands of years. For every pound of Soil Reef™ you add to your soil, about 1.5 lbs of carbon dioxide are sequestered. Click the Order Now button to buy biochar and get free shipping.
In Nature, there is no such thing as “waste”. The biochar process takes something that was once considered waste—agricultural or lumber residues—and turns it into the most possible value for soil-building. Biochar has existed for millennia, from forest fires and natural processes, as well as man-made sources. We are mimicking these natural processes and ancient practices using clean technology and adding value to what would otherwise be considered “waste”.
