Spero Latchis

Living Soil Company

South Portland, Maine, U.S.
Spero Latchis CCH. has had a long career in natural medicine. It is from this background that he came to understand the vital importance of soil regeneration work. Spero feels that if humans are to begin to heal themselves as well as the entire planetary ecosystem, they must first heal the soil. While operating a free homeopathic clinic in Himalayan India, Spero and his partner Robin were distressed to learn that the only food available to them was covered with highly toxic pesticides. Thus they began farming two acres of compacted clay earth that received 12 ft. of rain every summer. Studying the work of Dr. Elaine Ingham taught them how to turn their dense clay into fertile soil. In 2017 they moved to Maine and founded the nonprofit Living Soil Network. In 2022 Spero began making ecologically alive compost with the new Living Soil Company, and today consults on projects in the northeastern US.

He specializes in providing on the farm solutions to help the grower produce their own fertility onsite instead of subscribing to yearly applications from another company. After graduating high school where he won two national awards for innovative compost heat extraction systems, he went on to start an engineering training in New York. Simultaneously he started the Soil Food Web program and eventually transferred out of engineering to pursue a degree in plant science. This combination of engineering and plant science background helped him work with Hiwassee Products on developing the Bio-Extractor. Simeon has used the equipment he helped developed to help growers and turf professionals transform their management practices to reduce or eliminate the need for chemical inputs by promoting a healthy plant which than is able to resist adverse conditions and diseases. His favorite quote is from Rick Clark because it provides the context that is needed to switch from the safety net of conventional agriculture to the new world of regenerative. “If you are not uncomfortable with what you are doing, then you are not trying hard enough to change.”

I had been searching for logical answers to the questions that had been accumulating in my mind about soil. Only after I was introduced to Dr. Elaine’s work I was able to understand the connection between soil and all other living organisms. My excitement following that encounter has continued to grow over the years. In order to produce healthy food, it is necessary to prioritize the vitality and diversity of the soil. I take great pride in contributing to the vitality of the soil through the production of biological compost, as well as providing educational and advisory services.
