E7 / Green Dragon Fertilizer, CEO Jim Hernandez
In this interview with Jim Hernandez, CEO of Green Dragon, you’ll learn about how his unique new fertilizer is made.
Jim Hernandez is a sitting board member of a local North County San Diego Wastewater Authority. One day, Jim realized the wastewater being sanitized and flushed into the ocean could potentially be used as a fertilizer for all kinds of gardening. Him and other board members tested it and the results impressed Jim so much, he has started Green Dragon (5-5-0.2). By leveraging local sewage sludge turned bio-solids, Jim creates “Class A” bio-solids for soil enhancement.
Talk about a recycling-approach!
Did you know sewage could be reused and recycled into fertilizer?
“Our Biosolids are made to contain slow release nutrients and a very low salt index that does not burn plant roots, which makes application easy and worry free. Use it on lawns, flowers, vegetables, trees, and shrubs. Our product creates healthy soil to make you an eco-friendly, home gardening expert..” -Jim Hernandez, Green Dragon
Using biosolids is a contentious issue for some, but for others not so much. The issue at hand is “are human bio-solids safe to use in fertilizing?” The EPA says yes, but there are pros and cons of using bio-solids.
