Our production processes are designed to ensure quality while maximizing sustainability through increased organics recycling and production capacity.
Quality is Our Top Priority
Soilutions utilizes an aerated windrow pile system to create our compost. The process starts by combining ideal ratios of carbon and nitrogen inputs, which for Soilutions include green chile peels and stems from Bueno Foods, christmas trees from Just Sprinklers, and pulverized paper from Sandia National Labs, among many others. These inputs are combined using a formula for ratios and then spread into windrows, which are long narrow piles sized around 250'x30'.
The windrows are turned at frequent intervals over a period of months to introduce oxygen while the microorganisms (beneficial bacteria and fungi) within the pile work magic to transform the inputs into compost. We take temperatures mulitple times per week and use microscopes to inspect biology.
Once the compost process is complete after several turns, the piles are then moved to a curing stage for another period, which provides for further proliferation of beneficial fungus and bacteria populations. Finally, it is screened to 1/2 inch and determined ready to for your garden!
