“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the “greenest university and partnership” of them all? Well the University of Nevada, Reno and Full Circle Soils & Compost of course!”
Full Circle Soils & Compost and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) have worked together to create a “truly green campus” from start to finish. A recent article in NEVADA Today outlines this super sustainable recycling, composting, and all-natural campus fertilization “super team” that pushes UNR to new heights of GREEN GREATNESS! The below quote from the “truly green campus” article outlines the plan:
“Grass clippings are collected for shipment to Full Circle Soils & Compost, a Minden-area company that uses the clippings as one of the ingredients in its line of nutrient-rich soils and nutritional additives.
The University, in turn, purchases composted soils and specialized organic products from Full Circle for use in its landscape beds and on its lawns.
The program diverts large amounts of green waste out of the region’s landfills, said Marty Sillito, assistant director for Grounds Services in the University’s Department of Facilities Maintenance Services. ”
Now that is a “full circle” recycling solution. UNR is not only recycling organic items like grass and landscape materials but completing the loop by actually using the products made from their own organic materials back on the campus. Even better, the results are RIDICULOUS!
This is what happens when Full Circle Soils & Compost creates wildly productive soil amendments “custom” to the specific needs of the campus soils, giving the plants what they crave! Here is another section of the “truly green campus” article:
‘”The all-organic composted products that the University purchases for its lawns and gardens reduce the reliance on chemical pesticides and herbicides,” Sillito said.’
Not only are the results real, they are eliminating the campus dependence on chemical fertilizers allowing “truly green” results and a “green campus” without chemical fertilizers to shine through. Landscape projects can be just as and even more successful using all-natural compost and soil products. Not all soils, composts, and mulches are the same.
Growing success starts at the soil. Our all-natural planting products make sure the soil is like a delicious pantry, filled with everything the plant needs (and wants) to consume. Also, our enviro-friendly products help the soil system naturally replenish the pantry; it’s complicated, but healthy soil attracts a team of goodguy bacteria and fungi that produce the nutrients plants like to eat. Full Circle’s all-natural planting products provide you with the complete biological package needed to create and sustain healthy soil for your plants to live in. When your plants have a cozy, nutrient-rich soil pantry to work with, they happily produce an abundance of green grass, brilliant flowers, sweet fruits and nutritious vegetables.
The University of Nevada, Reno and Full Circle Soils & Compost really do create a “truly green campus” and partnership.
