Our Story

In 2001 Fred was Director of Worldwide Support & Education for an IT company and faced a major career decision … to move with his HiTech Career to Rochester, NY or stay in Rowley MA and change jobs.  The decision to leave the IT Industry and start a  new business was a turning point that changed the trajectory of Fred’s career, and in turn Pam’s.

PJC & Company, Ecological Land Care Inc. began in 2002 as a family-owned company that was a full service landscape provider specializing in organic fertilization programs.  Founders, Fred & Pam, were early adopters of the “green” movement and set  themselves apart from the competition by offering All-Natural Organic Fertilization services to residential properties on Boston’s North Shore.  Because of the challenges faced in finding authentic all-natural products for their service business, in 2005 PJC became distributors of Renaissance Fertilizers and in 2007 purchased the manufacturing rights to Renaissance All-Natural Fertilizers and sold their service division.  Renaissance Fertilizers have undergone extensive testing at Iowa State University and have been used by landscapers, schools, municipalities, golf courses and organic growers.

2013 – Peter reopened PJC’s organic fertilization division.  PJC once again offers organic fertilization services to homeowners and schools on Boston’s North Shore. This gives PJC the opportunity to field test and continually evaluate their products, programs, and approach.

2017 – Brought their first soil amendment to market – PJC ProHealthy Turf, CHARGE-S3|
2018 – Renaissance All Natural Fertilizers were renamed to PJC ProHealthy Turf All Natural Fertilizer
2019 – PJC ProHealthy Turf 6-0-6 & 8-0-6 All Natural Fertilizers OMRI Listed.

The Other Family Business

On any given day, there are nearly 438,000 children in foster care in the United States and that number keeps rising. This is a big issue that PJC is passionate about – even more than growing grass. Fred & Pam have been a licensed foster care home for the state of MA since 2009 and Peter & Megan joined the other “family business” and became a licensed foster home in 2018. Jenna & Collette are the built-in babysitters and support system.

Fred & Pam have been a part of a grassroots movement in the church to mobilize people to get involved in caring for children from hard places. The Newcombe’s have shared their home with over 100 children in an effort to plant seeds of hope in their lives so good things will grow.
