14 Feb What Nourishes Your Soil? – #nwfgs Feature Blog
The top few inches of our planet are home to millions of species and almost 95% of our food. It’s essential to know and maintain the health of your soil, especially in your own yard.
That’s where GroCo compost made with Loop® comes in. GroCo compost made with Loop® is a local classic that has enriched Pacific Northwest landscapes since 1976. It’s recycled right here in Washington – ingredients originating as waste are made into valuable resources at King County’s wastewater treatment plants. As water is cleaned, endlessly renewable resources are recovered: Loop biosolids, biogas, and recycled water.
Gardener and soil scientist Kate Kurtz discusses why she chooses GroCo compost made with Loop® biosolids in her home vegetable garden, and explains how you contribute every day to this endlessly renewable resource:
GroCo compost is simply made with Loop biosolids and sawdust from local mills. With a full suite of nutrients and loads of organic matter, compost made with Loop is a product that improves our soils and reflects the recycling ethic of our region. By using 100% of Loop as a fertilizer, over 42,000 tons of CO2 equivalents are offset each year. That’s like taking over 8,000 cars off the road!
