Let's Grow Together
Support our mission and track our progress by following us:
Lake Winnipeg is the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world, yet it is one of the most polluted. At almost 25,000 km², Lake Winnipeg’s shores connect to Treaty 1, Treaty 2, Treaty 3, and Treaty 5 land.
Protecting and benefiting the planet at each stage of its life-cycle.
Facilitates low-maintenance gardening.
Save time on weeding and watering plants.
Cultivate in a healthier and cleaner environment. Increase soil fertility without the use of synthetic fertilizer.
Perfect for home gardeners seeking to eliminate pesticide and herbicide treatment.
Increases crop yield, reduces agriculture wastes and fertilizer costs with up-cycled nutrients.
Economical, delivers greater efficiencies on storage and transport.
Truly sustainable alternative with broad socio-ecological impacts.
Greater convenience and performance.
Starts decomposing once placed in the soil and sequesters essential nutrients for seedling growth.
Protects seedling against transplant shock. Requires less seedling and soil maintenance.
Optimizing natural Eco-system functioning to up-cycle runoff nutrients
Lake Winnipeg’s massive watershed extends throughout the prairies and beyond, receiving agricultural runoff that is dense in nutrients (Nitrogen & Phosphorus). These nutrients help plants thrive, but an overabundance leads to overgrowth – a problem that is especially bad in Lake Winnipeg, causing a certain species of algae to bloom. These algal blooms lead to fish kills, neurotoxin production, and aquatic dead zones.
In wetlands, Typha act as natural filters and are very good at absorbing nutrients before they enter fresh-water lakes. Harvesting Typha helps improve overall water quality by permanently removing nutrients. No uptake value is provided if these plants start to decompose and release those nutrients back into the water system.
No pesticides, fertilizers, or additional water input is required for our products to be made. The removal of Typha directly benefits the aquatic ecosystem by providing improved habitat for wildlife and increasing vegetation biodiversity. The end result is healthier wetlands emitting less methane and with greater carbon capture capabilities. As well as enhance water filtration and flood mitigation.
