HAPPY FARMER

Description: Happy farmer is a product of tea leaves waste, egg shells, wood waste and oil palm waste, garden soil. It is called 5 in 1 solution ingredients (Happy farmer). This product makes an excellent growing medium for hydroponic and container plant growing. It is 100% organic soil.

The purpose of HAPPY FARMER is to help the environment to reduce pollution and reduce waste products in land fill. As a field at the forefront of environmental health, public health can take the lead in teaching and encouraging sustainable practices around our daily behaviors, including what we do with our waste products. Especially for those overwhelmed by the idea of global climate change often seems futile, it is important to remember that small lifestyle changes can have large impacts. One place to start is with composting. Composting is a natural process by which any organic material, such as food waste or lawn trimmings, is broken down by naturally occurring bacteria and fungus in the soil to form compost. The resulting materials compost is a nutrient-rich soil amendment that looks a lot like soil itself. Egg shell are made almost entirely of calcium carbonates crystals. Another use for ashes in the garden is to change the pH of the soil. Wood ashes will raise the pH and lower the acid in soil. Tea grounds are natured, organize matter, they increase nutrient levels and improve soil quality. These kernels have a low moisture content. Therefore, it is easier to process the kernels as they require less biological activity, energy, and power consumption during processing (due to their low moisture content). The pH of unaltered garden soil is best suited for native plants. That is because plants indigenous to the area are adapted to that type of soil and pH. Starting veggies outdoors or building a flower bed is excellent uses for garden soil.
