Living Worm Compost + Raw Biochar
Good Sweet Earth's Worm Compost (one 0.67 cubic foot bag) provides a natural boost of nutrients, minerals and composted organic matter to your soil while also introducing a wide variety of beneficial micro- and macro-organisms. (0.67 cubic foot bag)
Good Sweet Earth's Raw Biochar(one 5-gallon bucket) is a natural soil amendment that improves soil health, structure and fertility. The carbon in the biochar creates a perfect home for microorganisms to thrive in your soil. The porous nature of the biochar also helps retain water, making your soil more drought-resistant. Best of all, the biochar remains in the soil for hundreds of years! The source we use is certified 97% bio-based by the USDA.
Biochar needs to be activated before mixing with soil-- combine the Raw Biochar with the Living Worm Compost, apply water until saturated and let the mixture set for 10-14 days. This will inoculate the biochar; failure to inoculate/activate biochar before adding to soil will draw nutrients from your soil and stunt plant growth.
Usage: As a soil amendment, we recommend 2-3 cups of activated biochar per square-foot of garden space, or 2-3 cups per pot. Healthy soil should have 5-10% biochar for the purpose of nutrient retention and healthy bacterial growth.
