BioChar is a carbon-rich and charcoal-like substance produced through the process of pyrolysis, the burning of organic material in a low oxygen environment. It is both sterile and stable and is often crushed or ground to make a fine powder.

BioChar has a wide range of applications for soil, worm farms, carbon sequestration, water filtration, as a renewable fuel and more. BioChar is an excellent addition to your worm bin as a worm bedding amendment.

We proudly sell CHAR+TM BioChar which is created 100% from wood (including ash and moisture).

Please note this is unactivated BioChar. It is very important to only add activated BioChar to your soil. You can charge it in a worm bin or layered composting system, or steep it in a worm castings extract, compost tea or other suitable water-soluble soil amendment.

  • Has ability to increase exponentially the surface area available for microbial life
