South Ga Company Digging Deep on Sustainability Efforts

A South Georgia company that has focused on small farmers and home gardeners with sustainability in mind has announced the launch of a new product which will give back to a national wildlife refuge in the region.

Johnny Appleseed Organic operates a sustainable living development near Folkston, GA, where they pioneer the next step in the organic food revolution called Climate Farming™ within the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.

Johnny Appleseed Organic’s newest product, ClimateGard™, is the first “no kill, premium, all-purpose, organic fertilizer with sustainable packaging,” and it’s officially available for purchase through their Indiegogo campaign.

The self-proclaimed pioneers work to connect with those “who care about the earth, where their food comes from, and want to aid in climate change reversal.”

From the news release:

Most organic fertilizers derive their nutrients from inedible slaughterhouse and fishery material like bone meal, feather meal and fish emulsion. ClimateGard’s no kill formula sources essential micronutrients, humic acid, silica, living bacteria and fungi from the most ethical, sustainable sources available. ClimateGard’s blend of solar processed poultry manure, fossilized seabird guano, bat guano and sunflower hull ash provides essential nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, iron and magnesium in their most bioavailable forms.

By relying on reusable pallets made of recycled plastics, Johnny Appleseed Organic is doing their part to cut down any contribution to the waste stream. In addition, the Johnny Appleseed Organic website’s Climate Farm Channel and social media channels (such as YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook) are great driving forces for sharing useful content in a variety of areas including how to repurpose the ClimateGard product bag for household items such as oven mitts, aprons, and more.

Supporters can purchase:

  • a 7.5-pound bag for $24
  • a 15-pound bag for $47, plus shipping.
  • $150 to Adopt a School Garden
  • $350 for the Garden Club Symposium Package
  • $650 to Support a Community Garden.

Post campaign purchases can be made directly through the website after the campaign ends.

Every product purchased directly funds the Climate Farming operation at the Johnny Appleseed Organic Village, located near the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia. Johnny Appleseed is dedicated to being a resource for anyone wanting to convert their garden or farm into a carbon-guzzling oasis.
