Nutrient Rich Cultivation

On Coastal Sun’s central farm in beautiful Santa Cruz, California, they use two main styles of cultivation: Regenerative Soil Farming in the full sun gardens, and Bioponics (organically growing in containers) in the greenhouse and blueberry gardens.

Both styles focus on building a rich community of microbiology, which boosts nutrition uptake and creates healthy, phytonutrient rich plants.

Regenerating Our Planet

After a generation of industrial farming, fertile topsoil is critically low. This process, known as desertification, has all but erased microbiology from the spaces in which they cultivate.

It’s time to bring the biology back! At Coastal Sun’s Farm, and their network of Partner Farms, a spectrum of techniques are used to create thriving, biodiverse ecosystems, and to regenerate the soil.

Innovating Into the Future

In Coastal Sun’s 48,000 square foot flowering greenhouse, and six acres of blueberries, they have found a home with bioponics. With this method, they build mini-ecosystems of microbiology within each pot.

Bioponics conserves precious resources by recycling water, nutrients, and growing media, and helps them better use the space by increasing production per square foot. No worries about erosion and nutrient runoff means they can focus on the health of each individual plant.

Reversing Climate Change

The benefits of organic, regenerative farming are endless. By reinstating microbiology back into their soil, excess carbon is taken from the atmosphere and drawn into the ground where it once was.

This process is vital and absolutely necessary for restoring the health and balance of our planet.

“As leaders of the California organic cannabis movement, we see the relationship with HERBL as a natural fit. With their UNFI background in organic produce distribution and ours in organic blueberry cultivation, teaming up to deliver CA consumers high-quality, affordable organic cannabis products makes perfect sense.”
