About Renewed Earth

Renewed Earth was formed by brothers Jim and Dan Glas in 1996. The company markets compost, soil and mulch products at the wholesale level. We have two locations in Otsego, Michigan—a blending facility and a 70-acre composting and production facility.

Our focus is to improve the products used in growing media and outdoor landscape construction and maintenance projects.

Our home office is in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and our sister company, Kalamazoo Landscape Supplies started there in 1971.

Composting and Production Facility
Renewed Earth keeps between 60,000 and 100,000 cubic yards of bulk organic material on hand, which is in various stages of composting as it is being readied for incorporation into the final goods.

The composting and production facility was the first permitted industrial composting facility in Michigan. Dan and Jim worked closely with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to help develop the guidelines to permit industrial composting facilities. Since that time, Renewed Earth has worked with numerous large industrial entities, assisting with their own compost solution feasibility studies.

Blending Facility
Here, we produce final mixes for professional perennial nursery growers utilizing a computerized blending line. We have a unique set of bulk organic material processing machines to re-size, separate, consolidate, manage moisture, weigh or compost raw materials for inclusion in final goods.

Last year, Renewed Earth produced unique soil mixes for more than 70 nurseries throughout Michigan, Northern Indiana and Ohio. These nurseries used their own custom soil mixes to grow more than 6 million new container-grown perennial plants. In addition to the nurseries, we provided soil to six leading horticultural universities for hands-on classroom experiments and for specific research projects.

Our specialty is providing custom soil mixes designed specifically for your unique set of growing variables and price point.

Also, we've had the pleasure of hosting an annual tour for the Michigan State University horticulture students for most of the past 10 years.

Please contact us for information on any of Renewed Earth's materials: growing media, landscaping soils, pine bark, mulches, compost, bioswale soil or rain garden soil.
