Tim Penstone has a degree in Organic Chemistry from the University of Waterloo and is a graduate of world-renowned soil microbiologist, Dr. Elaine Ingham’s, Certified Soil Specialist program. He is currently COO of EnviroPerfect Solutions; a company that assists turf managers, municipalities, farmers, etc., to grow healthy, resilient turf and crops by focusing on the health of the soil.
For over 30 years he has been testing best practice methods and organic products for growing vibrant turf including compost tea, biologicals, and bio stimulants. His work and extensive trials led to his realization that it’s all about soil health, and not just inputs that grow good turf.
Along the way Tim developed his own organic fertilizers and customizable soil health care program. Tim has worked with turf managers, communities and growers throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan to develop municipal and agricultural programs resulting in reduced inputs and irrigation and better overall results.
