SOIL AMENDMENTS: Here is what we are using this season!


This season we are using a new product from Earthworks called Renovate Plus to amend our soil in addition to some compost from the UC Davis Student Farm. If you are interested in learning more about how we've amended our soil in the past, check out this past blog entry.

Here is a little bit about the product and the company from their website:

EarthWorks has been formulating and manufacturing the most complete Dry Organic fertilizers on the market since 1988. We start with carbon rich compost that feeds soil biology and will help to build soil structure. The real strength of the EarthWorks fertilizers is the addition of rock minerals, and multiple carbon sources that together create an agronomic superiority unlike any other fertilizers on the market today. The key to the EarthWorks program is to build a carbon foundation in the soil that allows for the reduction of excess fertilizer, preserving soils and budgets.

If you are interested in purchasing this product you can visit one of their distributors these locations:

Sierra Pacific

-or-

Sierra Pacific
510 Salmar Avenue
Campbell, CA

I know their locations and times aren't the most convenient for the home gardener, but they just don't have a sales channel for local nurseries yet!
