Veganic. Think of it as Vegan-Organic, meaning certified organic growing that is free from the use of animal products (manures, blood, bone or fish meals, etc.) and uses strictly plant-based materials.
This type of growing decreases the potential risk of contamination from animal-related diseases & doesn't introduce the hormones & other things fed animals that could have negative impacts to the environment & our health.
Our journey to veganic growing has been a long one. We had always dreamed of the day we could be certified organic. However, because we didn't want to follow the tradtitional animal-based organic growing methods, it took years of researching just what combinations of plant materials would achieve the proper balance of nutrients in the soil. The system that we have developed involves growing plants in a more natural manner than most traditional greenhouse organic methods and uses plant fertilizers that we have created using local waste plant materials. We use our own plant waste products along with other local waste plant materials, & ash from our Bio-mass boiler.
