This, along with OMRI certification now allows SkyCarbon to be used in certified organic farming.

Friday, March 8th, 5-7pmFREE!  But please RSVP here

Our monthly Open House events continue this Friday with a talk and demonstration of the agronomic and climate benefits of co-composting with biochar. We’re convinced we’ve stumbled across a highly significant optimization for biochar usage and deployment with this co-composting scenario. The solution is uniquely high performance in soil, easy to do, leverages the already existing infrastructure of compost operations globally (personal, commercial, and municipal), and achieves carbon impacts far beyond the raw biochar entered into the system. We’ve spun off the continue reading…
