GAIA GREEN Glacial Rock Dust is mined from a glacial moraine in Canada.
Volcanic activity and glaciation are the two ways in which nature regenerates soils. Glacial rock dust is the result of thousands of years of piedmont glacial action. As the glaciers travelled from north to south during the last ice age, they picked up rocks containing a range of minerals and trace elements. Under the weight of a kilometer of ice many of these rocks were ground into a fine powder, exposed as moraine deposits when the glacier receded. These deposits are mined, dried, and screened to be used as a natural soil amendment. Gaia Green Glacial Rock Dust brings this regenerating force into your garden without having to wait for the next ice age.
GAIA GREEN Glacial Rock Dust is approved for use in organic agriculture by Ecocert Canada (in compliance with Canada’s Organic Production Systems General Principles & Management Standards and Permitted Substances Lists (CAN/CGSB 32.310-2015 and CAN/CGSB 32.311-2015)).
