Docterre is an affiliated Soil Foodweb Inc laboratory and consultation service based in Quebec, Canada.
DocTerre assists in the regeneration of soil ecological services and functions in Quebec and Canada through offering accessible expertise, consultation and laboratory services.
Our approach is based on the premise that soil biology exerts immense influence on both the chemical and physical properties of soil. We combine soil food web science with agro ecological principles to achieve defined objectives.
We provide some of the most efficient and comprehensive soil microbial testing available. Then we use that information to design the most personalized soil regeneration process, fitting this process as smoothly as possible into our clients work flow. We achieve this while providing simple and easy to follow guidance as to how to achieve the changes needed in their soil in house; and we can also provide the treatment execution services ourselves if desired. We offer scientific documentation of transitions of soil practices if desired.
We provide scientific research, development, and documentation for companies developing soil products designed to improve soil microbial biomass and diversity for increased production, disease resistence, increased nutrient density, water retention, as well as carbon sequestration in soils.
DocTerre was founded in 2015 by Vivian Kaloxilos, graduate of McGill University School of Environment with ecological field experience at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. She was the first Canadian to complete the full certification training with Dr. Ingham in 2015, after several years of practical demonstrations, ecological field work, agro-ecological design, and agricultural experience.
We are honoured to be among the first Soil Food Web inc. affiliated labs and consultants in Canada that provide Canadians with effective assistance to help revitalize soil ecological functions.
For a number of years, we partnered with Soil Food Web inc. in the training and official certification process of future Soil Food Web Consultants in Canada and abroad. However we have shifted focus to consulting for agricultural producers, municipalities, and companies in areas such as waste management, composting, environmental engineering, and beyond. We offer a once-a-year training for workers in the above industries, available in both English and French.
