Troy Hinke of Living Roots Compost Tea
Troy Hinke left Nashville to begin his composting career at Rodale Institute, an organic research farm in Kutztown, PA. Serving as Rodale's Compost Specialist Troy worked side-by-side with Dr. Elaine Ingham, considered one of the world's leading experts on soils and compost. Here he performed experiments with compost and compost tea on both large and small-scale agricultural production. From Rodale, Troy moved back to the Middle Tennessee area. He has since started and co-managed an organic farm and CSA, along with serving as the soil and compost tea specialist for a local landscaping company. In 2015 Troy and his partner Samin Green moved from Nashville to Chapmansboro, TN to start a farm and homestead. Living Roots Compost Tea officially came to fruition in March of 2017 and has been steadily growing ever since.
