COMMERCIAL BREWER

TEA'S READY!


An effective tea brewer pulls air in from both the bottom and the top of the unit, ensuring well-oxygenated tea to keep biota alive. 

A PARADIGM SHIFT: LIVING ECOSYSYSTEMS IN GREENHOUSES

Integrating scouting, beneficial insects, compost teas, and probiotic soils into high-volume production system.

BANKER PLANTS

HANG-OUTS FOR GOOD BUGS


Peppers and Lobularia provide a shelter and home base for beneficial insects. Banker plants let them thrive even when pest populations are low.

VERMACOMPOST

REPLACE CHEMICAL FERTILIZERS WITH ORGANIC GOODNESS


Worm casting, beneficial fungus and bacteria and other organics form the foundation for our compost tea. As a result of using compost tea in place of chemical fertilizers, we see less botrytis and certain foliar diseases. The compost tea coats the leaves with good soil biota, which ensures plant diseases are quickly eaten before they do damage. 


BENEFICIAL INSECTS

USING PREDATORS TO CATCH THE PEST


A combination of predatory insects control the pests that would damage our crops. The use of these insects are tailored to each crop based on the pest and season. The healthy environment we create also encourages beneficial creatures, like spiders, to make our greenhouse their home as well.

COMPOST TEA

BUBBLING AND BREWING WITH OXYGEN


Beneficial microbes displace bad ones because they occupy the same habitat. Harmful ones have a much harder time establishing themselves.


PROBIOTIC SOILS

ENFUSED WITH MICRORHYZOMES AND MORE


We build a living soil by starting with weed-free sterile soil and add mycorrhiza and other beneficials to start the biology over.
