Amendments

Whether you are amending acreage or just a small garden bed, we offer both small and bulk bags of organic amendments.

Amending the soil is the best way to increase the fertility of your crop as well as giving back to the soil. The hope is to create a biodynamic foundation so heavy fertilization is not required for a bountiful harvest.

We carry OMRI and NOP compliant amendments for your soil. For a full list and description of the variety of products we carry, please email us a request. We can also answer any questions by phone or in person during office hours.
