Dr. Mumtaz A. Cheema and students at Memorial University in Corner Brook, NL, have begun forage crop growth experiments with AirTerra’s SoilMatrix Biochar product as of June 20 – 27. AirTerra’s product was shipped via UPS from Calgary to Corner Brook on May 9th and arrived on May 18th. Pictured here is Dr. Cheema with two of his students standing behind boxes of AirTerra product which all survived the two week trip.

This past weekend (April 9-10), AirTerra sold biochar to about 100 avid gardeners who stopped by our booth. Two years ago in the same setting, AirTerra could only describe the benefits of biochar as our registration of the product was still in process with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). All that changed in December 2015 when we received our registration permitting us to sell this lifetime soil amendment product – the first company to do so in Canada.
AirTerra has a booth at the 2016 Garden Show, April 9 and 10. Find us in booth 023. We plan on promoting biochar as a compost additive and soil-enhancing agent for the adventurous and experimental gardener. We have plenty of our initial pure biochar product on hand for purchase. This event is our second of the year. The first was a gardening and sustainable living show in Red Deer — the March, 2016 Rethink Red Deer Eco Living Fair. Karin is pictured here selling our product at this event.
