GLACIAL ROCK DUST


Glacial Rock Dust is a natural mineral product which is produced over many thousands of years by glacial action. It is made from a wide variety of rocks which contain a broad spectrum of trace minerals that are collected and pulverized by the expansion/contraction action of the glaci er. As the glacier recedes, it leaves behind deposits of “glacial moraine”.

Glacial Rock Dust is organic and loaded with essential nutrients that it releases slowly so your plants can be healthy throughout the growing season. Add as a soil amendment to your garden, raised beds, or container garden to improve the quality of your soil and add essential minerals to your harvested fruits and vegetables. It will enhance flavor in your harvest. Your crops will be bigger and more nutritious. Vegetables will have fewer pests and increased yields.

Both plants and animals, including humans, benefit from a regular supply of the trace minerals present in Glacial Rock Dust, which are best transferred to the human body through foods grown in soil rich in trace minerals. The mineral nutrients in Glacial Rock Dust work with the soil rather than against it like chemical fertilizers, building healthy soil that is full of plant‐available nutrients and microbial life.

Glacial Rock Dust isn’t just for vegetable gardens. It can also be used in flower beds for increased number of blooms, larger blooms, and healthier growth. Glacial Rock Dust is an excellent source of readily available calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium plus trace elements and micronutrients. It also increases phosphorous availability to plants. Glacial Rock Dust will improve root structures of all plants.
Glacial Rock Dust also is a great source of grit for your worms, to use in their gizzards for digesting food.  

Glacial Rock Dust improves soil structure, moisture holding properties, nutrient availability and bacterial action. When the correct balance is achieved, organic matter is turned into humus and the soil becomes a favorable environment for a host of beneficial molds, fungi, bacteria and increased earthworm activity (so important). When this happens, the living soil becomes a buffer to the many negative variables gardeners must contend with. It increases resistance to disease, insects and drought.
When added to your worm bin the results will include castings with higher amounts of micro-nutrients, and trace minerals, and happier and healthier worms! 

How to use Glacial Rock Dust

Glacial Rock Dust is safe and easy to apply. Before planting, gently dig 2-4 pounds per 10 square feet into the soil.
During the growing season, moderately sprinkle Glacial Rock Dust around the base of plants and mulch into the top 1” surface of soil, monthly.


Mix generously into a compost pile or bin to stimulate microbial activity, add minerals, and speed up the process. Use 5 to 20 pounds per cubic yard of compost material.

Remember, healthy plants start with healthy soil!  Health soil starts with worms.
