[alert-success]Dave Thompson – Teacher, Farmer, Entrepreneur and Organic Fertilizer Expert [/alert-success]

In the 1970s, Dave Thompson, a first grade school teacher in Aurora, Ill., began teaching his students about the cycle of life by watching chicks hatch. Dave began taking the chickens back to his farm and, as the flock of chickens grew, so did Dave’s love for the birds.
After years of caring for chickens and selling their eggs, Dave realized the mountain of chicken litter his chickens produced could be used as fertilizer, and his entrepreneurial mind went to work. After years of testing and analysis, he created a microbe-rich fertilizer produced through a natural aerobic composting process. Dave doesn’t use accelerants and he doesn’t heat his compost; he simply lets nature run its course and produce nutritious, plant-strengthening compost formulated to organically grow prosperous flowers and vegetables. This is important for Dave, because for him, “The Way it’s Made Matters“, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.  Read more about Dave Thompson at : Healthy Grow.com

  1. Organic fertilizers like compost, composted manure, vermicompost,and leaf mold offer a diverse spectrum of nutrients and microbes that you can not duplicate with synthetic fertilizers. I am very satisfied with the results I get from using these products to grow food crops, fruit trees, shrubs and ornamentals. I have never killed a plant with compost, but I’ve killed plenty with too much of the synthetic fertilizers.

  2. My tip is do your research before you go to the garden supply center. At the big box stores, company sales reps will be there to sway your decisions on the weekends. Know what you want before you go, and stay strong!
