Biochar is a carbon-rich charcoal used as a soil additive. It is created by burning agricultural waste through a pyrolysis process. Adding biochar to soil increases agricultural yields, promotes micobial and fungal growth, and absorbs carbon. The City of Minneapolis entered a memorandum of understanding with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community to promote the use of biochar in urban agriculture.
Minneapolis has provided biochar/compost under this agreement to several community groups to help improve local food sourcing in areas of need. Watch the Biochar projects video to learn more about biochar projects in the City.
