Easter Radio

Listen for the voice of Jim Brooks, owner of Soilutions and compost guru extraordinaire, on Sunday night, channel 1550 am. I think the time will be between 4-5pm. After you've stuffed yourself with Jelly Beans and Cadbury chocolate bunnies, relax by the radio to hear discussions of local organic farming, farmers, and others in the community (like Jim) who dedicate their lives to making ours better.

Spring Update

Wow, has it been a month since I last posted?

I suppose a lot has happened since then: we've gone through another "eventful" grind with the County, I have been giving lectures and presentations on a regular occurrence, we have finished screening various wood products and are now concentrating on screening Premium Compost to keep up with the growing flow of customers.

But most importantly, within the last month, we have once again been reinvigorated by the sometimes near deluge of customers. True, the weather has delayed our spring season a little, but for the most part we have seen a lot of our old customers. The people who come year after year a little earlier than the others warm us because they start to squeeze open the door that the cold winter shut quickly and hard on us at thanksgiving time. There were two weeks this year that we had a total of one person each week buy material from us. We expect that but it's still really hard on us and shatters any confidence we might have built during the "season".
