Biochar is a by-product of a process that converts waste into energy. When mixed into soil it promotes plant growth, soil biodiversity, and helps breakdown industrial contaminants. Most importantly, it provides long-term (thousands or millions of years) carbon sequestration. BIOCHAR MARKS THE SPOT is a public experiment to exhibit the effects of enriching the soil in a 60ft ‘X’ with biochar.

Want to be part of a community experiment to sequester carbon and invest in soil health? Bring along your waste materials (like junk mail) to one of our Biochar Barbecues this summer and help transform it into biochar for the park grounds, or for AgBags, or beyond.
