These are plant, animal and mineral preparations used in homeopathic quantities. Members report that they enhance soil activity and plant life processes. Some are added to composts and liquid manures, others are used as ground and foliar sprays. They are made by the Association and supplied to the members at a reasonable price. Members can - and do - produce the preparations themselves if they wish.
