Our passion is showing farmers and fans alike the power of aligning with Nature.
At Crescive, we are leading industry research in the understanding of Soil Food Web functions. We see how these vital functions can affect the bottom line in both quality and yield. We complement our soil food web knowledge with microbe-approved minerals and nutrition to achieve the highest results in soil regeneration.
We are a pair of Certified Soil Life Consultants taught by Dr Elaine Ingham. We are dedicated to showing farmers how to unlock the solutions that are under our feet. We combine the Soil Food Web with the right minerals and nutrition to gain the most regenerative power in turning our soils around. This specific combination of the best science of microbes, minerals and nutrition into one cohesive method of soil regeneration, we call The Crescive Method. We deliver actionable advice based on the best cutting-edge regenerative science and observation from thousands of hours in the field.
We’ve seen firsthand how the power of living soils can elevate a company from a commodity to an industry leader. Teaming with the intelligence of Nature on the 3 key components of microbes, minerals and nutrition can rescue a business from the trenches of an impossible-to-win war on pests & disease to autonomous health, with yields and flavor alike. We develop the tools, show you how to use them, and provide the analysis that helps you sleep at night.
MEET THE TEAM
Sara graduated from the University of Utah with her BSN in the Science of Nursing. She had a successful career in Nurse Management prior to her work in soil restoration. Because of this, Sara has a unique perspective to treat the soil as the patient.
Sara worked closely with Dr. Elaine Ingham for several years mentoring students and teaching future Soil Life Consultants. She now leads the microscopy lab and quality control for Crescive. She is our leading expert in composting and the soil microbiome. Her focus is on eliminating the need for pesticides by focusing on balancing nature's core components of microbes, minerals and nutrition. She is passionate about soil health because, well, soil health is human health. She now mentors her own students and clients.
Scott grew up in an agricultural family and saw the plight of the farmers in trying to raise a crop based on synthetic fertilizers. He became disillusioned and left his career to study Dr. Elaine Ingham's soil research. He went on to study many soil illuminaries in the field of biological agriculture and is instrumental in bringing mineral balance and nutrition to Crescive's soil regeneration methods.
Scott has applied his produce industry insights and his knowledge in soil research to become a foremost expert on understanding the soil, and how to produce effective Biological treatments. He understands the "living nature" of the soil organisms, the cultivation process, and how to find peak performance in a facility. Scott is our mineral balancing expert and all around soil wizard.
