GROW BETTER FOOD
Dirt Rich’s biggest passion lies in spreading knowledge about the concepts and science of regenerative agriculture and providing a local product that helps gardeners and farmers maintain a holistic agricultural system to grow more nutrient dense food. We have learned most of our processes from Elaine Ingham and base our product around encouraging healthy biology in our soils.
You can help stop climate change and environmental destruction. Dirt Rich wants to help you make change easily and affordably. Food waste composting is the most energy efficient form of local recycling and helps mitigate methane emissions, landfill expansion and herbicide use.
PRESERVE OUR WILD PLACES
When you use holistic methods of fertilizing and managing your crops, you help stop the decimation of our soils, water and wild lands.
