Grow Food Calgary Experts Feature

At Grow Food Calgary, we are excited about the many experts we’ve gathered together to bring you fundamental information on gardening.

Mike Dorion is one of those experts.

Here’s what Mike has to say about himself:

“I am Mike Dorion “aka the Compost Kid”. I love food! Local grocery stores just can not match the memories of tastiness from my Grandma’s garden.”

His company, Living Soil Solutions focuses on handcrafted natural products and traditional methods using modern techniques to feed your soil and let the soil feed your plants. Those other guys only feed your plants and much of that leaches into our water system.

Does anyone fertilize a forest?  No! The forest takes care of itself.  Mike can help mimic that in your back forty.

If you are looking for the perfect lawn like a golf course, then Mike is not the right fit for you. Living Soil Solutions is more focused on the long term solution than the quick fix.

And here’s what we, at Grow Food Calgary, really like about Mike:

From his web site: LivingSoil.ca :

Our Vision: To build a community of growers that are working with nature, not against her, in a safe and non-toxic manner.

That’s our mission, too. And that’s why we like Mike.

Join experts like Mike at the Grow Food Calgary Vegetable Growing Immersion program, starting April 22 at the Calgary Zoo.
