Compost is “black gold” for growing things – but only if it’s clean
Based out of central Texas, Patriot Green Products makes its compost tea out of the charred remains of the Lost Pines fire that blew through the Bastrop area near Austin back in 2011.
As explained by Fretz, the materials gathered from those remains make for an excellent growing medium – be sure to watch the video above to hear more about why Fretz decided to create Patriot Green Products.
Recognizing that compost is “black gold,” to quote the Health Ranger, Fretz, who used to work in the waste management industry, came up with the idea after coming to the realization that traditional waste products are highly contaminated and largely unsuitable for clean growing.
Upon setting out to find an alternative, Fretz learned that the charred remains from wildfires like the one that blew through Texas back in 2011 are an ideal growing solution that is both clean and green.
“I would call it wildcrafted compost,” Adams says during the segment about the high quality of the Patriot Green Products compost tea. “It’s not made from people’s backyard grass clippings that are sprayed with pesticides.”
Fretz further expanded on this by revealing what makes his Texas-based compost so special.
“Particularly, the compost we have here in Texas is very special because it’s from the Lost Pines fire, which were pine trees that were removed many, many years ago, brought to Leander where they were processed into compost, and they also have biochar.”
Though the company started out and is still a wholesale business that caters primarily to commercial companies and the government, Patriot Green Products has since expanded its product line to the consumer market.
As you have probably noticed, the world is on shaky ground. Supply chains are still wrecked from the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19), inflation is sky high, and many people are now wanting to grow their own food at home because they can see that the system we were all told to rely on is no longer reliable.
As such, many people want to grow food at home, and what better way to do that than with Patriot Green Products compost and biochar, which is loaded with the nutrients that plants crave.
“We know that people want to grow food, and we want them to grow it clean,” Fretz said during the segment.
“We have it available in super sacks, so they would come on a pallet – a one cubic yard super sack. This material has biochar blended in with it, and it also has beneficial microbes inoculated into it.”
If you are the type who does not mind getting your hands dirty and is interested in becoming more self-sufficient, this episode of the Health Ranger Report is one you will not want to miss.
