SARASOTA, Florida – To support home organic gardeners and growers, Sarasota Green Group (SGG) has recently launched a product line that includes OMRI Listed pest and disease control solutions that are safe for people, pets and the planet.
SGG’s Earth’s Ally product lines are FIFRA 25(b) exempt and bee-friendly, preventing disease and protecting gardens, greenhouses and indoor crops during all stages of growth, using safe and natural ingredients like rosemary, clove and peppermint oils, sea salt and citric acid. These products are derived from field-tested, farmer-approved products currently used in commercial agriculture.
As Sarasota Green Group prepares to sell to retail garden and home improvement centers, and directly to consumers through its Amazon storefront, veteran business leader Scott Allshouse has been tapped as SGG’s first chief executive officer. The former CEO of Buddy Fruits has more than 20 years of experience in the consumer-packaged goods industry and looks forward to growing the new company.
“Eating, living and growing fruits and vegetables in a healthy manner is very important to today’s consumer,” Allshouse said. “Sarasota Green Group is on a mission to support gardeners in providing safe, chemical-free products to their families and customers.”
Selected from the safe and effective products across the organic agricultural industry, Earth’s Ally products are bottled in ready-to-use packages for both the home gardener and the small organic farmer. Insect Control gives gardeners the best defense against common garden pests like aphids, spider mites and whiteflies. Disease Control, a broad-spectrum fungicide, leaves behind no harmful residues and can be used up until the day of harvest to control powdery mildew, blight and leaf spot. Weed & Grass Killer is a non-selective herbicide powered by sea salt that kills all common weeds to the root and offers an alternative to glyphosate.
