Yesterday, the company was highlighted in the Solano County Daily Republic newspaper. The article, New Chemical-free Soil Amendment Firm sets up in Solano, launches the company into selling our first production batch. Much for much of kudos for the success of our launch in Solano is a result of our strong relationship with the Economic Development Corp., the Solano County Farmbudsman, the County’s Senior Analyst, in addition to strategic partnerships with Recology, Solano County’s composting operation and Il Fiorello, the leading organic olive oil producer in the region.
Just a week earlier, 3 truck-loads of our initial product were shipped to Southern California, for use by one of the largest developers in the state. As are many, they are vitally concerned about the “heat deserts” created by extensive asphalt parking lots. For this application, we blended in additional biochar, which will increase water retention and reduce the impact of the heat reflected from the asphalt.
SymSoil’s critical role is to significantly reduce the mortality rate experienced with large plant installation by enabling the trees to more effectively take root, survive and grow in generally inhospitable environments.
This is another application in SymSoil’s quest to regenerate the earth’s soil.
