Worm Castings from Sophia Organic
Growers of all stripes of plants and flowers have long recognized the highly beneficial effects of using worm castings. To help fill this and other gardening and farming needs with the onset of spring, Indianapolis-based company Sophia Organic has launched its flagship product, GROW: Earthworm Bounty—100 percent organic earthworm castings—and will also be joining Michaelson’s Lawn Care of Indianapolis to provide non-toxic, organic fertilization and pest control treatments for lawns and gardens with a commercial-grade worm-tea brew, GROW Tea. The GROW production facility is now able to handle the demand seen coming in the Indiana marketplace.
GROW: Earthworm Bounty is available in one-, 15- and 50-pound bags at the Indy Winter Farmers’ Market in Indianapolis, Pogue’s Run Grocery, as well as some online sources. GROW Tea will be available for spray applications in April.
“This is so attractive to our clientele, because it is totally safe for children and pets, immediately after application. It doesn’t burn your plants and it’s keeping our watersheds cleaner,” says Sophia owner Michael Yager. “I hope GROW will become an important ally in the rehabilitation of our soil.”
