Buy ProBiotic Food (PBF)for plants in bulk from Vashon Bioenergy Farm and we'll include a loaner IBC tote, while supplies last! PBF is used to boost yields and support regenerative organic farming. Similar to an organic compost tea, just dilute at a rate of4 parts water to 1 part PBF. Apply diluted PBF on a normal basis to soil or use as a foliar spray during the growing season. PBF can be used on all outdoor plants, including edibles, ornamentals, medicinals, perennials, annuals, trees, lawns, and containers.
PBF is pending WSDA organic certification as a soil amendment and plant food with bioavailable nutrients, and beneficial microbes that aid in root development. This product is crafted in small batches, with love, from wasted food resources.
