The Lowdown: Carbon-based inoculants for soil

Awesomeness: Refines ancient tech for modern day use

CharGrow takes the waste from local sawmills and transforms it into high-value, carbon-based inoculants to help build the vitality of lawns and gardens. CGʼs proprietary formulations have been proven to: increase the fertility of soils, improve beneficial soil microbes, and reduce water and nutrient requirements of crops. They also have 7+ years of proven research and a 51% increase in yield when used in agricultural applications. Not bad for the co-products of a traditionally un-green manufacturing process.
