What is Robust Compost?

Robust Compost is a complex community of soil microbes in a solid transport medium.

Robust compostThat is, Robust Compost is a soil amendment that is very different from conventional or commodity compost.  Robust Compost contains the complete soil biome, or soil ecosystem including bacteria, fungi, archaea, nematodes, amoeba, flagellates and micro-arthropods.

The complete soil biome was first described in academic papers by Dr. Elaine Ingham and called the Soil Food Web.  The soil biome is as complex and fascinating as the gut biome.   Underlying the descriptions are the well documented fact that a handful of healthy soil has in excess of 10,000 species and more living organisms than people alive today.

For 40 years, Dr. Ingham has been teaching a method of creating a particularly robust type of thermo-compost, which contains no active pathogens and has significant biodiversity.  It contains very specific amounts of fungi and other life forms – at SymSoil we encourage people to view these lifeforms as animals (COWS), although strictly speaking they are much broader types of life than just animals.  But in this analogy, the organic matter that you can see with your eyes known as compost is food for the “animals” (HAY).

We are encouraging all organic gardeners, farmers and arborist, and all those involved with sustainable or regenerative farming to refer to this valuable product as Robust Compost.  Robust Compost holds the key to restoring fertility to land and promoting healthier foods.
