The vegetables were excellent this year. My customers all loved them declaring that they taste better and last longer than anything that they have had so I credit the strategies learned through your website and the Intelligent Gardener.

I’ve had a volunteer, Eric who has been actively using his brixmeter on various fruits and veggies around the county. He’s experimenting with conventional, vs. pesticide-free, vs. organic veggies. I’m happy to report that our squash scored a very high 14 out of 15 and our carrots also the highest of all those he tested. Much of it is due to the soil analysis which Erica conducted and the follow-up of supplements/nutrients we applied to the field and other areas.

So far so good with the garden!
Some feedback. I really like how easy it is to use. I had already bought my amendments for the year so I had to convert some of the recommendations. I will be testing again in the fall and am looking forward to seeing the results. I really appreciate all the work that you have done. This is a great tool and I am recommending it to many of my friends. This makes the process of remineralizing so much simpler and easier.
Keep up the good work and many thanks.

The Grow Abundant OrganiCalc worksheet is both powerful and easy to use, and the results I’ve had using it on my farm have been nothing short of spectacular. Erica has opened up the world science-based remineralization to everyday gardeners and farmers, and has allowed us to take control of the health of our soils.

I’m hopeful that as time goes by, and people see the results, that more of our local Tarahumara (Copper Canyon, Mexico) farmers will begin soil testing. Last year I used the Organicalc recommendations, to plan my fertilizer application and got the best corn harvest anyone remembers off of one of my fields. The yield was 2,200 Kg/Ha and in years past with the former owner it had been less than 300 kg/ha using the same open pollinated local seed. The locals are having trouble believing that it was the fertilizer and seed spacing that made the change. I planted an 18,000 plants/acre population and the norm here is about 25,000 – 30,000 plants/acre. My job here is to attack the problem of chronic malnutrition. After nearly 11 years of observation and relationship with the local farmers I think the best way to attack this is to help them grow a sufficient number of calories and do all that I can to make their harvest as nutrient dense as possible…

So many Quadra (and Cortes) Islanders have much more productive gardens thanks to Organicalc and your hard work. Now some of us are getting into remineralizing our orchards, and the results have been spectacular so far. We’ve very, very thankful to you!

I had a sick child at the time and found the root cause was vitamin/mineral deficiencies so the most effective and affordable way to correct this was to grow our own food since store-bought organic is still not mineralized to a persons need… Stumbled onto your book Intelligent Gardener in 2013 and have used and loved the results ever since. I have a passion to help people grow their own mineralized nutrient dense food unto healing their bodies and minds. I own and operate a small 20 share 1/2 acre CSA and an herbal consulting business. I am indebted to you and Steve for the knowledge, wisdom and passion you pour into growing. It has forever changed my life, my family’s life and hopefully everyone we meet. Thank you!!!

Our gardens are growing really well since we started using your OrganiCalc method. I couldn’t be happier. I’m also spreading the word about this to our farmers market customers and community garden volunteers.
