Brent and Desiree Customers
We would like to thank you for steering us in the right direction and and introducing us to the wonderful world of no-till gardening, along with compost teas using Baby Bu and Bu's Blend in teas and top dress. The recipe and instructions you sent us two years ago made a world of difference in the terpene production indoors, but with the sun, the plant's full potential is unlocked. Thank you for sharing love, experience, knowledge, TRUTH! We never stop learning, getting better with each run.

I first heard of Malibu Compost and Biodynamics 7 years ago. Having an Ag. Degree, I was curious enough to do plant trials in which Malibu Compost competed against six of its competitors. The results were simply outstanding, and my spouse and I decided to invest in the company. The enthusiasm for their products and growth has been quite something to witness!
Nick Penovich Owner, Soil Science Services
My company has been doing compost teas and natural and holistic fertilization for the last twenty years in the greater Seattle area. We use Bu’s Blend Biodynamic Compost from Malibu Compost because it comes from true organic farms and has no growth hormones or antibiotics in it as compared to many “organic” products that come from conventional, corporate farms and are still labeled organic. We trust Malibu Compost and their products because they go above and beyond all of the organic standards.

Hey THC Farmer. I'm a first time grower, although I'm no stranger to plants. I've been an avid user of cannabis for over 15 years and I'm continually amazed even today by it's remarkable healing properties. That being said I know I'm preaching to the choir here so I won't make this a rant about the wonders of Cannabis.
