We’re proud to introduce our line of lawn and garden products made from food scraps.
Did you say
We certainly did! At George’s Harvest, we make lawn & garden products from recycled food scraps, which we save from the landfill and turn into something better. It all started with a man, a plan, and something called a “digestor.”
Did you know:
In the US, food waste is a huge problem, with nearly 40% of all food going to waste – that’s 119 billion pounds a year! Together, we can make a difference.
How we turn food scraps into food for your plants
Pathogens are destroyed. Food scraps are broken down. And behold: a clean, nutrient-rich product is made.
Pathogens are destroyed:
Inside the digester, temperatures reach levels that meet pasteurization requirements. The temperature, moisture, and other levels are monitored throughout in order to maintain optimal conditions that eliminate pathogens and create a sanitized product.
Food scraps are broken down:
Our digestive enzymes break down food waste over the course of 24 hours in this controlled environment. The digester’s closed-loop system ensures a clean process without pollutants, contamination, or foul odors, and its digestive microbes lock in nutrients as the food waste is processed.
A clean, nutrient-rich product is created:
What comes out the other end is called the digestate, and we’re able to quality-check it on-site, immediately. Its micro and macro nutrient levels are checked regularly as part of our constant system monitoring.
