Myrt Thompson Soil Building

A project is currently underway to improve the soils along the Myrt Thompson trail, in preparation for planting this fall.  This project is a partnership between the City of Campbell River, GLT, Renuable Resources, and the Campbell River Indian Band.  The project will be completed in four phases:

  • Phase 1: Deposition of organic material which will be broken down to soil and provide improved shade and water holding abilities.
  • Phase 2: Addition of effective microorganisms and water to help with the breakdown and support the growth of the flora.
  • Phase 3: Fall planting of three layers of native plants: forbs, shrubs and trees.  Mycorrhizal fungi will also be added as a symbiotic partner.
  • Phase 4: Watering with effective microorganisms for the following year as required.
By improving the soil prior to planting, we are hoping to establish native vegetation more quickly, and prevent re-infestation of the site with invasive species.  Please contact us if you have any questions about the project.
