Miraculous Healer Of The Soil

Bamboo is right up there with hemp when it comes to being a miracle crop.

It's easy to grow, producing 10 times as much building material as a forest in the same amount of time.

When shooting, bamboo grows 3 to 4 feet PER DAY. After the first few years, it produces an annual crop for up to 10 years.

It takes in 28% more carbon dioxide than any other plant known to man.

It produces an edible shoot, and the stalk to be used for construction. It also can produce bio char, an ideal carbon sequestration model.

By growing bamboo, not only are you sequestering more carbon than a forest, but it's growing at an unbelievable rate! A true hero in the sustainable plant world!
