Stimulator (liquid worm castings) are not an expense – they’re an investment.
At Calder Permaculture we are passionate about sustainable agriculture. Our property at Nyah West is a Lime/ Clay soil with only 10 to 25 mm of poor-quality topsoil. it was clearly apparent that in order to grow any food crop the soil would require specialty care to improve its quality. Permaculture methods were immediately implemented. With a strategy formulated and consistent dedication to the application, it became apparent that the soil was becoming more productive.
After years of feeding the soil with homemade compost, organic mulches and animal manure, various species of compost worms, as well as earthworms, started to appear. As the worm population increased, plants in that particular area became more robust and lush dark green, producing larger quantities of quality produce that became more resistant to insect and disease attack, and far more tolerant of heat and cold stress. Moreover, the flavour of the produce was so enhanced it was an absolute taste sensation.
