Question for you:

Do you know what’s in your compost?

There are a ton of benefits to making your own compost rather than going to a garden store and buying fertilizer. A major benefit is that you can turn waste into fertilizer to build living soil.

You can grow incredible veggies utilizing what would normally be waste for you! Like green waste from your yard, leftover scraps from your kitchen, cardboard, paper… Keep it out of the dump – turn it into soil.

Keeping your food scraps and green waste out of the dump can be your contribution to ending global warming and we believe this will help you be a better steward to the planet.

Your plants get more nutrients from the compost you make than fertilizer you buy at the store.

Many fertilizers such as seabird guano, bat guano, fish meal… are less than ethically sourced and produced. At the decimation of our land, forests, and the labor of children.

If we want to think sustainable we need to think about what we’re putting into the ground to grow our food, how it’s going to affect the ground in the future, how nutritious it’s going to be, what we have for resources already present without having to pillage other resources and to constantly look for new inputs.

Nature’s pretty perfect if we can just find the balance.

Oh yes you can! Pin away!

What’s actually in the fertilizer that you buy at the store?

Bone meal, blood meal…

When you’re talking about bone meal and blood meal we’re talking about animals that have been grown in less-than-ideal conditions and when they process them for the table they use the leftover blood bones and feathers to create what they call organic fertilizers. We do not believe these things should be considered organic, because of what the animals are being fed, because of the antibiotics, and because of the mistreatment of the animals.

Or your using conventional farming which uses petroleum-based products made by large chemical companies, and possibly recycled bomb material from war.

Grow your food with compost, not bombs.

It’s easy if you have the guidance and proven framework to follow.

Here’s the catch: composting and building soil DOES have a lot of moving parts. If you don’t have a solid system to follow, it can get messy.

You might miss a few critical things.

You will definitely feel overwhelmed and confused about what to do when, and how to do it.

That’s why we created Supercharged Soil Through Strategic Composting. So you don’t have to spend years testing, experimenting, trial and error, and you don’t have to have as many “uh-oh!” moments as we’ve had over the years.

Enrollment will be open for just a short time this year. If you want to be ready for composting in the spring, it’s time to start planning NOW.

We can’t wait to show you everything we have been working on. This course is the culmination of…

  • Decades of living off-grid
  • Building over 10 closed-loop regenerative farms
  • Teaching hundreds of people how to become better earth stewards and care for this planets
  • Building cubic tons of soil that grow nutrient-dense food

It really has been years in the making. And we can barely contain our excitement!

Whether you are just starting to think of “going green” and composting, have already set up your first worm bin, or just want to up your game…
