Building living soil.
We need to talk more about building living soil.
It is cheaper overall to build soil and not just consider it as an unrelated host. “Nuisance” weeds grow in imbalanced soils and are there to tell you something is off. Fighting weeds with plastic is cheating/delaying the problem and its long term impact is far greater than you think. When you bring your soil back to life, anything you grow in it will be that much more nutrient-dense and yes, profitable as well so it’s worth it.
The cannabis industry as a whole is one of the most unsustainable out there, yet the focus is always on the medicine, no matter how poorly it is managed.
