Washington, DC meet coconut coir.
Our preferred growing media at H Street Farms is coconut coir, a light, microbe-free, 100% natural by-product of coconut harvesting. Made from washed and aged coarse fibers from the outer shell of coconuts, the material absorbs and maintains water better than standard soil allowing seeds, cuttings and full grown plants to thrive.
Additionally, the process of obtaining coconut coir does not destroy natural ecosystems, like peat moss does, making coconut core THE natural, renewable and environmentally friendly alternative to other soil amendments and growing mediums. Coconut coir is suitable for any and all plant types.
