How do we do it?
Inspiration is drawn from the legendary Terra Preta or "Living Soil" of the equally legendary El Dorado or "City of Gold". Terra Preta was made possible in part by the introduction of charcoal into the rich but nitrogen-poor soil of the area. Similarly, in our location we are blessed with extremely rich topsoil that is diverse from the natural inputs of ancient glacial silt and volcanic activity of days long past. To this topsoil we also add charcoal which provides a beneficial environment for micro organisms. These micro organisms are what the plant relies on to make nutrients from the soil available.
