Grow healthier plants with our PREMIUM COMPOST
Now taking Pre-orders for Fall 2023
Benefits of Premium Compost
Improve water retention in soil
Reduce weed and pest pressure
More growth, higher yields
No need for fertilizers
NOT ALL COMPOST IS CREATED EQUALLY
Our ingredients are carefully coursed to ensure healthy microbial diversity. All materials are grown on site or are carefully selected to ensure quality and the absence of contaminants. This allows diverse populations of beneficial microbes to thrive and break down the raw ingredients in 15 days. The end product is high-quality, nutrient-dense, microbial-rich compost that helps regenerate your soil and grow larger, healthier plants.
A common misconception is that compost is smelly. But the truth is...
If it smells like crap, it probably is crap
High-quality compost should:
Smell like the forest floor
Good compost is filled with aerobic microbes that break down organic material and contribute to nutrient cycling. Smelly soil is a sign of ANAEROBIC conditions, which contribute to disease and poor plant heal
Be dark brown in colour
A rich chocolate brown colour is indicative of a high concentration of humic and fulvic acids. This is a sign of high nutrient density and that your soil can support life.
Other colours such as white ashiness in the compost is also a sign of anaerobic compost.
Contain 50% moisture
Water is an essential component to keep your soil living. Dry compost is unable to sustain microbial life. You should be able to squeeze a handful of compost and when you relax, the compost should maintain its form.
NEVER accept compost that isn't up to these standards!
Made with green waste, biosolids, or industry byproducts
Often anaerobic or burnt due to poor handling
Not assessed for pathogens
Smells like manure
Sometimes arrives still hot
Does not regenerate soil
Made with carefully selected ingredients to promote biodiversity
Piles are closely monitored and aerobic conditions maintained
Tested for pathogens and the presence of beneficial microbes
Builds soil structure and water retention
Cured to nurture and mature a complete soil food web
THERE IS ONE MAJOR ASPECT THAT DIFFERENTIATES OUR PREMIUM COMPOST FROM OTHER COMPOSTS AND MAKES ALL THIS POSSIBLE:
THE SOIL-FOOD WEB
Have you ever heard of the soil-food web? It's kind of like the food chain but in the soil.
A look through a microscope will reveal that the soil is filled with a diverse ecosystem of microbes. From bacteria and fungi, to nematodes and microarthropods, the soil is home prey and predator organisms that each have their own specialized jobs and keep each other in balance. When in the right balance and diversity, these microorganisms work in harmony to create a healthy living ecosystem in the soil that provides nutrients in plant available forms directly to your plants so they can thrive WITHOUT THE USE OF CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS.
The soil food web is made up of a huge variety of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, micro-arthropods, and more! These are the tiniest parts of the food chain and each have their own role to play.
The bacteria and fungi play both play an important role in the process of breaking down organic matter and turning it into a plant available form. Without bacteria and fungi species, nutrient cycling becomes very impaired and the soil quickly becomes devoid of nutrients. They are also both essential to creating beneficial soil structure, which allows for aerobic conditions and good water retention.
Protozoa, nematodes, and micro-arthropods are all predatory microorganisms that prey on bacteria and fungi, and the excretions of these organisms offer a rich source of plant-available nutrients. This group of microorganisms also work to out-compete any pathogenic microbes that may be present in the soil, providing natural protection from pests and disease.
When the whole soil ecosystem is working in harmony, we see major improvements in the health and resilience of the plants that grow in that soil. These plants are known to:
be more weed and pest resistant
have deeper root systems
grow larger and/or produce higher yields
