THE FOREST’S FLOOR

The forest floor holds the richest components of the forest ecosystem. It supports a large number of decomposers, fungi, algae and bacteria as well as various ecosystem roles for nutrient cycling. Undeniably, the floor is the base of all forest life.

To capture this same vivacity and growth cultivation, the team at Forest Floor Organic Soils has developed specialty soils using Humus sourced from the mighty forests of the Pacific Northwest. As closely as possible, our process mimics the premier quality of soil you would find in these delicate, yet powerful ecosystems.

Our process begins in old log yards. Years ago, when logs came into the mills, they brought pieces of the forest with them. Just as they would have in the natural forest environment, the logs dropped bark, dirt, moss and organisms. Labeled as waste, this debris was swept into piles, overlooked and undervalued for upwards of 50 years.

At Forest Floor Organic Soils, we find these old sites, then completely recover and recycle the materials. After decades of composting, this forest soil is perfectly preserved and richer than ever. With an environment focus, we revive, screen and blend the soil for growing success— ultimately returning forest materials back to the earth.

NUTRIENTS

We use natural, organic ingredients with no synthetic chemicals or additives. Forest Floor products are better than simple composted soil – they are enriched with nature’s finest ingredients. Our living soil is created just as soil is cultivated in the forest – slowly and with naturally occurring microorganisms.  

Indoor grows require more than simple organic garden soil. Because indoor plants do not have access to natural minerals and organisms, it is crucial that they are grown in complex, nutrient-rich soil.

Each of our living soil products are thoroughly blended in the Forest Floor cubic yard with 13 base ingredients including kelp, forest humus and fish bone. These ingredients are truly living nutrients that will continue to thrive in the soil for multiple grow cycles. This means each soil product is so rich with nutrients, no fertilizer or additives are ever needed, even after your second or third grow.

The healthier the garden soil, the heartier the vegetable. We offer a premier planting soil so full of nutrients that it is possible to grow vegetables 3 times the size of those grown in your typical organic garden soil

Background
  • The plants are flourishing so well, we see between two to three inches a day, and we’re in the middle of winter right now.

  • Working with Forest Floor Organic Soils, they’ve been really active at coming out and checking and making sure we’re getting what we needed; and that it’s working with our environment.

  • We did a side by side comparison out in the field on a couple rows and the production on the Forest Floor Organic Soils was better than the soil that I’d made previous.
