Appreciate the response and we do have a rich source of animal waste to use including worm castings which are made in the next town over, we even have our own worms and use the castings and tea.
What I am most curious about is the microbes and adding to our hard, cement like soil to help break it up and create soil in sand and clay like conditions. Maybe the worm castings or tea would work?
I seek easier recipes. With ingredients I can find locally. FYI, farmers here love love love Dow and Monsanto so when we go to the local seed stores, they sell tons of chemicals and seeds covered in chemicals. Fortunately, we found a first ever local organic and native seed festival where purchases were made but nobody had information on microbes.
Can I use powdered pumice in any recipes as a substitute for basalt? someone gave me a recipe that uses manure and among other items, ground basalt. Hmm.
