Iron Earth Canada

IRON EARTH™ around the community

IRON EARTH CANADA™, Raw Materials Company, Marine Recycling Corporation and other local businesses have teamed up together to grow fresh produce at the IRON EARTH Community Garden in Lockview Park, Port Colborne to support the Port Cares Reach Out Centre Food Bank. IRON EARTH CANADA generously donated enough natural plant fertilizer to add minerals to the soil for each plot.

The harvested fresh produce from the garden benefits the Port Cares Reach Out Centre food bank. Here is a picture of some of the volunteers that helped make the venture possible.

Quick Facts!

It’s in the Family!

During the off season, Jordan Elliott of Marine Recycling Corporation and IRON EARTH CANADA was busy growing a variety of vegetables for the new garden using IRON EARTH natural soil conditioner. IRON EARTH is an organic micronutrient fertilizer that contains 76 organically bound earth elements. IRON EARTH is an organic soil conditioner and plant food that restores the vital nutrients consumed by plants after each growing season. 

“We’re so impressed with this product and we can’t wait to see the expressions on everyone’s face when they see how far along these seedlings are,” said Jordan Elliott. "At this rate, we’ll have tomatoes by July!”
