The Waukesha County Green Team’s

Permaculture & Gardening Group presents

Healthy Soils

by Sandy Syburg, President Purple Cow Organics

Thursday, October 29, 2015   6:30 – 8:00 pm

As gardeners we know there is a difference between dirt and soil,

and the value of composting and amending the soil, but what

is a healthy soil and how do we create and maintain it.

Presenter Sandy Syburg, travels throughout North America learning with, and assisting growers through the application of bio-mimicry. Purple Cow Organics mission is to provide organic conversion services with a commitment to producing the highest quality soil products available, improving the soil and the quality of the food it grows while remaining committed to doing no harm to the environment in the production of its products.

In the 1990’s Syburg implemented a shift in production to include only ingredients from rapidly renewable resources. Purple Cow Organics conversion services annually process and divert over 150 million pounds (75,000 tons) of material from landfills. With increased knowledge of the potential risk of chemicals in our growing environment, Syburg is committed to converting organic nutrients in the most Eco-friendly manner. (Eco as in Ecological and Economical). Syburg’s experience over the past two decades in the development, production, and distribution of compost, studying soil science, and developing soil amendments has put him in the national spotlight as an innovator and high quality, ecological producer.
