How to Transform Your Dirt into Soil
Many soils, especially in Colorado, have very low levels of microbial activity due to pesticide and fungicide use, or due depletion through harvesting, lawn clipping removal or neglect. But there’s an easy way to remedy this dirty problem -- Microbe Brew!
Applying Microbe Brew immediately boosts soil microbe populations, which go to work digesting organic matter and minerals and turning them into plant-available forms that can be readily absorbed by roots, stimulating growth.
What is Microbe Brew?
Eco-Cycle’s Microbe Brew is made by brewing worm castings (that is, worm poop) in highly oxygenated water, which drastically boosts populations of microorganisms that are beneficial to your soil and plants. This “tea” is a living soil amendment that instantly goes to work balancing your soil and feeding your plants by releasing the minerals and nutrients already present in your soil.
It requires no prep work -- just sprinkle it over your lawn and garden beds using a standard waters can and then water it until your soil is thoroughly moistened.
