Who We Are

The founder of the company, Collin McLauchlin, shares his story of how the company began.

The concept for the company was born out of my own experience of trial and error with the soil products available. I was a frustrated gardener, I could not find the soil blends that gave me exactly what I was looking for. I noticed there were many inconsistencies as I mixed and blended my own amendments with the off the shelf soils available. Even after my own amendments and composting, some were too woody, some too much rock, bugs, root aphids, fungus gnats, etc. This gave me poor results and I knew I could do better. There seemed to be a missing link. I was looking for a ready made soil with high quality sourced products, that would add to the soil web, not detract from it. I wanted to create a product that I could use in my own garden right out of the bag. Using my own soil blend I was having great results, the plants were proof of this and others started to take notice. I received requests for my blend and it kept growing, it simply snowballed from there.

A friend helped me manufacture and bag the soil, we were sourcing locally from the great companies we still use today. Ultimately we wanted to grow a great medicinal cannabis product while being eco-conscious and socially responsible with the business.

Here we are 6 years later, we are a thriving business supporting other local businesses and providing socially responsible soil products that we are truly passionate about!

Worm Farm

This large family run enterprise generates 450 tons of earthworm castings (organic soil amendment) per year. Based in Sandy, Oregon they are OMRI listed (for organic use).

"We feed our worms an organic blend of grains guaranteeing our product quality and consistency month after month, year after year. We have pure castings that have been multi-screened to create a natural growth enhancer for any plant to thrive."

The creation of "black gold' (worm poop) begins with virgin peat that has no clay or sand but is high in organic matter. The African night-crawlers are fed a very rich organic material with trace elements and a wide range of minerals. Then nature is left to its own amazing devices and the end product is a super nutrient rich organic fertilizer. Due to the diligent harvest and production methods used the pure earthworm castings are free from stones and other foreign materials.

A multi-screening method keeps the castings PURE with useful microbes including fungus eating nematodes and bacteria. Farmer Brown's Earthworm Castings yields exceptional results and gives an eco-friendly solution for farmers and gardeners to grow exceptional products with a natural organic fertilizer.

I’ve been working at Sensi Science since fall of 2016. My main duties as an employee are: mixing, bagging and servicing equipment. My favorite part about my job is that it is all hands on work and not much office work. It’s cool to see different soil blends come together. Some things I like to do aside from work are: jet skiing and working on trucks.
