Both conventional, corporate agriculture and the hydroponic industry have popularized the notion that soil is just a chemical equation. The chemistry is important but it’s not everything. Living soil is a 3-part system: physical, chemical, and biological.
Together, those elements form a complete ecosystem of healthy bacteria, protozoa, and fungi which work in concert with nematodes and arthropods to produce healthier plants with lower costs and less environmental impact than conventional agriculture.
The appreciation for biodiversity and microbiology has been on the decline for decades, but we want to help growers discover it, learn it, and benefit from it.

Leighton is at the forefront of making safe, natural land and garden care products accessible to the masses. In 2012 he set up a small-scale aquaculture system with 100 tilapia at the Rodale Institute. He worked with world-reowned soil biologist Dr. Elaine Ingham, blending his by-products with traditional compost and worm casting to prove the value of aquatic ecosystems and how they can reduce the need for synthetics in the environment.
Leighton spent years studying composting, compost tea brewing, extract making, and vermiculture before crossing paths with James Sottilo of Ecological Landscape Management, a nationally recognized pioneer in organic land and tree care. James’s had Leighton making custom products at scale for countless project across the country for years until his untimely passing. Leighton continued on engineering soils to allow advanced biological life to colonize for large high end landscapes and eventually landed in the cannabis production space in 2017.
