What is Organic Soil?

It’s easy to assume that all soil is organic; it’s soil after all! Contrary to popular belief, organic soil is much, much more beneficial to your garden than chemical-ridden soils. In fact, there are plenty of Negative Effects of Chemical Fertilizers to help educate you on why you should transition to organic gardening. Here’s the main difference:

Organic soil is cultivated using organic plant and animal materials (think cow or chicken manure) that have decomposed and provided us with microorganisms, minerals, and nutrients your plants rely on to establish roots and grow. This soil is crawling with living microorganisms working hard to create the best ecosystem your garden needs to thrive.

For instance, our Kellogg Garden Organics All Natural Garden Soil is cultivated with aged recycled forest products, aged arbor fines, composted chicken manure, bone mean, alfalfa meal, oyster and dolomite limes, bat guano, worm casting, and kelp meal to enrich your soil and help your plants establish strong roots. True organic garden soil like this will never have chemicals or synthetic additives that harm the environment, beneficial bugs, or plants. In fact, good-quality organic soil can even help your plants resist pests and disease!
