About Us


The team at Forest Floor Organic Soils started with three guys, all from different backgrounds, but with one common goal in mind—the creation of premium organic soil. After years of hard work, the Forest Floor team has developed a line of nutrient-rich soils that will help any garden or commercial grow operation reach full growing potential. From home vegetable gardens to industrial greenhouses, Forest Floor has set the standard for Pacific Northwest organic soil.

Our team was inspired by those looking for the best soil for indoor and outdoor grows and saw the extraordinary value in working with organic ingredients and naturally sourced microorganisms. After testing the science, bending the rules and working tirelessly to develop an organic product that outperforms all dirt, we’ve created the best array of soils available.
