EcoGro are a local company with a simple goal: to help you grow your garden without damaging the planet. They planted their roots in Cumbria over 60 years ago when Richard Harrison began building unusual machines using old World War Two tanks on his pig farm near Carlisle. What he was making was an early version of the modern anaerobic digester, now seen across the UK on farms producing renewable power from waste or crops. Richard also realised that the digester’s by-product had better plant growing properties than that of normal animal dry waste and would make a perfect garden fertiliser. From here, the EcoGro idea was born.
