Why Living Soils are the Best for Gardening & How Krause House Farms Can Help Get You Started

When it comes to gardening, the type of soil used can make a significant difference in the health and growth of plants. One of the best options for gardening is using living soils. But why are living soils considered the best for gardening?

What are Living Soils?

Living soils are soils that are teeming with life, including beneficial bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. These organisms work together to create a healthy ecosystem within the soil, providing essential nutrients to plants and helping to maintain soil structure.

Why are Living Soils Beneficial?

Living soils are beneficial for several reasons. First, the microorganisms in living soils help break down organic matter, releasing nutrients that are essential for plant growth. This natural process reduces the need for synthetic fertilizers, making it a more sustainable option for gardening.

Additionally, the microorganisms in living soils help improve soil structure, making it easier for plant roots to access water and nutrients. This can lead to healthier plants with stronger root systems and better resistance to pests and diseases.

How to Create Living Soils

Creating living soils is a relatively simple process. Start by adding organic matter,  such as compost or worm castings, to your soil.  Krause House Farms carries Man ofthe Red Earth Worm Castings with the best price of the season!  Worm castings will provide food for the  beneficial microorganisms and help improve soil structure. Avoid using chemical fertilizers or pesticides, as these can harm the delicate balance of microorganisms in the soil.

Regularly adding organic matter, practicing crop rotation, and avoiding soil compaction can help maintain the health of living soils in your garden.
