The single greatest thing you can do for your soil is to introduce biology, and we would like you to think about soil like your gut. Without the right microbes in your gut, you do not digest even the highest quality food. In a similar vein, without the right biology in your soil, your plants cannot reach their genetic potential.
We offer two different types of worm castings or vermicompost, bacterially dominant, and fungally dominant and all of our castings include the use of locally produced BC biochar a key to producing a superior worm casting.
Our fungally dominant worm castings start out life as a local waste stream of wood chips and leaves from tree trimmers and the waste stream from the River Crest Homesteads chickens and goats and spend a total of 12 months breaking down and building a fungally dominant community of microbes before they spend their final 3 months in our a worm digester with a proprietary plethora of organic ingredients to ensure the worms and microbes have access to the full spectrum of nutrients needed to produce a top shelf premium grade worm casting.
Our bacterially dominant worm castings are also made from all organic local waste streams consisting of vegetable waste from our market garden lab and from local restaurants and are produced using the Hungry Bin where they spend about 3 months digesting in this flow through style system.
