Our Solutions

If we want clean water, we have to get the biology back in our soils. If we want to grow and harvest crops, we have to build soil and fertility with time, not destroy it. The only way to reach these endpoints is to improve the life in the soil.

All of our "solutions" are actively aerated with a GeaTea 250 as shown above.

Compost Extract: 4-6 hour brew time
It Can remain viable for up to two months or more. Microorganisms in an extract have gone into different states of dormancy. When applications are directed onto soil, an extract might be preferred as the organisms will wake up and grow as food resources and environmental conditions allow.
Active Compost Tea: Brew time: 24 hours.
When food resources are added such as molasses, kelp, humic acid etc., the microorganisms sense this new presence of nutrition and begin to “wake up”, grow and reproduce. Because the microbes in an Active Compost Tea are in the process of growing and multiplying, they can produce a lot of bio-film, or “slimes and glues”. This is ideal for application to plant and leaf surfaces (foliar spray).

    Soil and plants harness the power to sequester carbon from the atmosphere.

    Carbon Sequestration: Carbon sequestration is the long-term storage of carbon in plants, soils, geologic formations, and the ocean. Carbon sequestration occurs both naturally and as a result of human activities. In a 19-year study, scientists dug roughly 6 feet down to compare soil carbon changes in different cropping systems. They found that compost is a key to storing carbon, a strategy for offsetting carbon dioxide emissions.The article for this study can be found here. The use of compost and compost tea enables stewardship of local natural resources by improving soil quality, reducing agricultural water use, pesticide use, and chemical fertilizer use, among other benefits such as improved crop yields, and increasing soil carbon and organic matter.
