Easy to Use Compost Tea – Always Fresh – Brew More for Less
In every square inch of soil there are billions of active microbes that make up a complex community of organisms living in and around the roots of plants. The soil food web is a series of conversions of energy and nutrients between microbes. When organism decompose complex materials, or consume other organisms, the nutrients are converted and are made available to plants and to other soil organisms. Excessive amounts of liquid and synthetic fertilizers can be detrimental to living organisms when applied into your soil. Reintroducing living microbes found in compost can help rebuild your soils food web.
