Margarita Fores now sells eco-friendly packed soil

Margarita Fores’ Grace Park is now carrying organic soil in plastic-free bags.

Thanks to the Good Food Community, Margarita can now serve plantitos and plantitas the eco-friendly way.

In her Instagram caption, she said she was one with the said enterprise’s advocacy. The soil comes from Tarlac’s Nay Marie whose pride and joy is the soil that she’s been cultivating to make vegetables grow.

The soil’s health matters more and the quality of the vegetables will follow.

Because of this, Margarita realized the focus of her business. “I’ve bored my team with this realization too but it does center me in times of crazy. It’s not profit we are cultivating, it’s community! Our health, the health of our relationships, the health of our society. We may go through different forms and (im)balance sheets of multiple colors, but if we keep true, the peace and love will always grow,” she wrote.

For our dear plantitos and plantitas, we’ve got beautiful organic soil for you, in 2kg plastic-free bags. Thank you @goodfoodcommunity! We are one with you in this advocacy. “Beautiful soil by Nay Marie in Capas, Tarlac. We hardly pay attention to it but it's any organic farmer's pride and joy. After a couple years without the shiny distraction of incredible yields and the richness of constraint, one realizes that it's not vegetables we're cultivating. It's the soil! Focus on soil health, seasoned farmers say, and the vegetables take care of themselves. I've bored my team with this realization too but it does center me in times of crazy. It's not profit we are cultivating, it's community! Our health, the health of our relationships, the health of our society. We may go through different forms and (im)balance sheets of multiple colors, but if we keep true, the peace and love will always grow. It takes time, she says. May we, like Nay Marie, love and pay attention to what really matters. It's vermicompost so that's earthworm poop mixed with compost. You can bury your bokashi product in it and put your veg seeds to sprout in it. We took a while to figure out how to package without plastic so you'll find average about 2kg in cassava-based bag and wrapped in a paper bag. If you need more, we may opt to put it in a small sack." —beautifullysaid by Char Tan of Good Food Community!
