Turning Agriculture Waste Into Superfood For Plants

No, it’s not just a bag of mud! In an effort to encourage sustainability, Shamrock Botanics puts agricultural byproducts and waste through a multi-step, months-long process to produce nutrient-rich soil and fertiliser for everyday plants. We speak to founder Rachel Kwan about getting into the botany business, the types of ingredients found in Shamrock’s products, as well as catering to the sudden surge in demand for gardening supplies over the last two years.
