What’s DentaBoost?

Several years ago, a world-famous organization discovered our neem bark toothpowder. They fell in love with the product and how it made their mouth feel.

Digging Dirt: July 2016

Nothing makes a neem tree happier than 90-degree+ temperatures and rain nearly every afternoon, so the greenhouse is gorgeous this summer, even if the people who work in it are wilting!
