Carolina Locust has launched a new line of sustainable agrarian products for the 2015 gardening season.
First opened in August of 2014, Carolina Locust’s focus is to provide access to long lasting outdoor living items. This new agrarian line provides a wide variety of products for the garden including stakes, posts, compost bins and chicken coops. Each item is designed and built from Black Locust wood with the home and agricultural gardener in mind.
“Organic gardening is becoming increasingly popular and rightly so,” says Atara Jaffe, product manager. “We wanted to provide a product that people can rely on for food-grade safety, while lasting a lifetime.”
Black Locust, or Robinia pseudoacacia, is an American hardwood species. Native to the Appalachian Mountain range, the tree will prosper in areas where other trees do not. Black Locust also is a quickly renewable tree. These characteristics make it an alternative to tropical hardwoods that contribute to harmful rainforest deforestation. Backed by U.S. Forest Service research, Black Locust is rot-resistant for over 50 years and is hard and pest-resistant. Chemical-free, non-toxic and organic, Black Locust is an alternative to pressure treated lumber. The wood is harvested in the United States, Lacey Act compliant and can be FSC certified.
