Established in Abbotsford in 1998
Transform Compost Products has a vision to create a variety of compost based products that provide year round organic nutrient and growth solutions for for all your lawn and garden needs.
Transform was founded in 1998 by Dr. John Paul, a professional agrologist who has been involved with composting since 1985. We have produced quality products since 2000. For the first few years the focus was on the research necessary to produce the best in compost products. During that period we also built relationships with farms that can supply a consistent source for our products and are now pleased to offer some of those products to the market.
“At Transform Compost Products we look to provide chemical-free solutions to gardening needs,” says Dr. Paul, “Being concerned about the chemicals we use and their impact on the environment is something we all need to care about.” Dr. Paul is also co-author of the Compost Facility Operator Manual.
We are committed to recycling nutrients and organic matter into beneficial plant products. We are also committed to providing you with complete solutions for all your lawn and gardening needs without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticide.
Producting quality compost is very important to us. Our worm castings and soil conditioner are approved for organic use in British Columbia.
Composting regulations focus on three important aspects:
- that the composting process is done in an environmentally sustainable manner.
- that the composting process will kill potential pathogens and weed seeds.
- that the compost product is safe to use
Using compost for organic food production requires documentation that the composting process is done correctly. The new International Good Agricultural Practice guidelines also require documentation on compost use for edible crop production, especially if compost or organic fertilizer is applied within 120 days of harvest.
In the meantime, we are creating some educational videos for Lawn Care in British Columbia, and more information about how quality soils are produced!
