    That's awesome, @Joomby, I'd be honoured to help, any way I can, no problem at all, mate.. especially when not in school and what not. If you know of stores that you want to carry certain things, especially in Canada, can put em on our list to visit too when we tour so we can get more options in them.

    Meanwhile, yeah brother, direct your peeps to our "The Dons' Organic Garden' thread if you want for free help, its much like a live organic chat, just until our website launches, may as well since lots of people already building on there- always fun to help people build a living organic soil and source things; no matter what country they're in- always good vibes.

    Also doing free private consults still, just via email, and sometimes cell, for good karma and continued learning / practice, whenever needed, but yeah threads a cool place to land, as said.

    Since you're interested, quick update, just to stay connected, not promoting or anything, we have a real solid partner (and team) set up in Canada, and thats where we plan to roll out first, coast to coast. Since thats where we have a few large glacial deposits under our ownership/management.

    One being a few million yards of glacial rich peat based soil, the other being a couple large glacial rock dust deposits, in the 200,000 tonne range.. just doing tests on it now, or as soon as my sample lands, then will be awaiting analysis.

    plus a major timber mill that creates astonishing amounts of lumber, which has given us access to well over a billion (with a b) kg's of fungal dom compost that is not too far off from market ready.

    So we have some major assets working for us, but a little cash infusion would be very good so we can expand faster. Ideally we would buy our own dump truck, super B, as well as soil bagger, crusher, auger, loader, and screener.

    It's good your helping people for free and karma is great thing as I'm sure by helping people out now it will build your rep for when your business is ready. And Holly shit you have got some quality resources at your finger tips.i work in the mining industry in Australia maybe I can move to Canada and operate your fleet and fix your gear haha. Think big man you sound passionate about it and it sounds like all your apples are lining up. Show a broker or bank your plans and knowledge they would be stupid not to give you a loan considering the market. Anyways I'll stop jamming this thread and update myself on your thread

    Does anyone have an alternative to Bat Poo? I have access to FREE Raccoon, fox, squirrel, skunk, pigeon, owl, and duck poo, and a few others, but unfortunately the animal rehabber that I know doesn't rehab bats :-(

    I'm pretty sure all those craps you mentioned need to be hot composted or vermicomposted first. They all eat one form of a meat or another.

    on guano for flowering i recommend sea bird guano its much more sustainable and less harmful to the environment alot of the guanos they blow a wall of the cave out scrape up all the guano and the bats get scattered and die where as sea bird guano is easy to get, dosent hurt anyone and comes with a 0-11-0 npk or if you get peruvian sea bird guano 12-11-2

    Some bats eat fruit, but even bat guano for the most part is aged. They don't give it to you fresh, lol.

    Ok, now I see what you're saying, but I simply want to know if my plants would thrive as well using any crap that I can get FREE, since I would have to purchase bat guano. You always read about people using bat guano and some times cow manure, but I never read where people are using other options like rabbit, or deer, or anything else really.

    Well, if you wanted to use those that you mentioned, I would highly recommend composting them first. They will work fine. If you don't want to compost, you risk the chance of pathogens getting to your plant or yourself.

    Your can use rabbit or alpaca poop without composting it at all. My buddy had about 9 alpacas last year and in use their shit as a topdress in veg....plants loved it. Rabbit poop works the same

    Yeah, rabbits eat plants so you can use that raw.

    Can you get rabbit or organic horse or cow manure? Although fresh castings are not to be underestimated..

    Since going vegetarian they are thriving x 10
