Our products and methods can improve soil's quality and fertility. Using our living compost direct or liquefied will boost your soils food chain.
Moving soil can move weeds, pests and diseases to your lawns and gardens. Our process ensures these worries are eliminated.
No need to pay high trucking fees, rent equipment or spread for days. All of our products can be created and applied in an afternoon.

They may not look like much but these microscopic creatures are hard at work. Fungi and bacteria (the 'good' kinds) attack soil aggregates (like sand) and ingest the nutrients within. This process pulls out naturally occurring nutrients which are locked in the soil and improves the soil quality (allowing move oxygen, better water retention, giving better texture, etc). But, now those nutrients are locked inside fungi and bacteria - bring in the predators!
Predators, which are still microscopic, feed on the fungi and bacteria releasing the nutrients freely into the soil. Because this process happens around roots (another part of the food chain), these nutrients are readily available for the plant to take up!
Not all plants need the same nutrients just like not all animals can eat the same foods. This is why a healthy soil ecosystem contains multiple types of beneficial fungi, bacteria and predator microbes.
Our products are customized according to the crop you wish to grow. Apple trees? - more fungi!
High THC cannabis? - more bacteria
A beautiful lawn? - 50/50

We start by collecting green waste from local businesses, farms and industry. Green waste includes restaurant prep waste, manure, fish waste and wood chips.
This process lowers business waste removal costs, lowers the impact on our local waste facility and provides an environmental option for industries without a waste outlet.
If your business may benefit from our waste diversion program, please contact us using the button below.
The type of soil and crop determines our compost recipe. Some crops need more fungi (woody), more bacteria (leafy) or some need a higher predator count (fresh turned soil).
Our composting process is closely monitored and manipulated throughout a 72 hour process. Oxygen, temperature, moisture and microscopic health is monitored throughout this time to ensure top quality and dense microbe population for maximum benefit.
Once this process is complete we have our Compost Activator ready to sell and our beginning step for our other products.
Each product has it's own process but usually we get our "will work for food" employees involved in some stage. Our red wrigglers help us to break our compost down further or their castings increase beneficial bacteria levels to combat anaerobic (low oxygen) 'bad microbes'.
We sell our castings and products containing castings fresh for maximum benefit - moisture and oxygen are important to keep the 'good microbes' alive and ready to populate your soil! Our worms are very happy with their high quality food and will leave us cocoons (worm eggs) which will hatch in your gardens to ensure you have a population of large predators.
We are based in Rural Nova Scotia - one of the few lucky places in the WORLD to have delicious wild blueberries! This is a big business for our neighbours and our province. We are currently doing testing with our products to find the best solution to common blueberry problems!
If you have wild blueberry fields and are interested in being involved in this case study, please send us an email using "blueberry case study" as the subject.
Vineyards are a fairly new addition to Nova Scotia and it has become a booming business because of our climate and soil. We are currently doing testing with our products to solve grape problems and study which microbes bring out the best flavour!
If you have a vineyard at any stage and are interested in being involved in this case study, please send us an email using "grape case study" as the subject.
Keeping a hay field healthy can sometimes eliminate the profit! We are doing testing with our products to find the best recipe for keeping hay/silage fields healthy, profitable and nutrient dense!
If you have a hay field that you use yearly and are interested in being involved in this case study, please send us an email using "hay case study" as the subject.
*We are almost at capacity for this study
We are always interested in case study suggestions! If you have a common problem crop that you feel we should be testing our products on, send us an email and tell us why! Subject "Study my crop"
