Our mission is to empower individuals and organizations to regenerate the soils in their communities.

3-STEPS TO SOIL REGENERATION

Step 1 in the Soil Foodweb Approach

IDENTIFY WHAT'S MISSING IN THE SOIL

Productive Soils should be teeming with a plethora of beneficial microorganisms – the Soil Food Web.

The first step in regenerating soils using Dr. Elaine’s™ Soil Foodweb Approach is to figure out which microorganism groups are missing.

Step 1 in the Soil Foodweb Approach

REGENERATE THE SOIL

Adding BioComplete™ Amendments restores the Soil Food Web so it can get back to work—to the benefit of farmers and the environment.

It’s a remarkably quick process that can result in dramatic improvements in just a few short months.

Step 1 in the Soil Foodweb Approach

MAINTAIN THE SOIL FOODWEB

Fortunately, caring for the newly regenerated soil isn’t complicated.

Farmers simply need to adopt some simple new management practices that can actually result in reduced labor, fuel and input costs, higher yields, and higher profits!
