Not sure about organic soils but I think what you want is some good old well rotten manure. All soil is organic and living and needs to be fed. Manure allows microbes and earthworms something to eat and loosens the soil so that water can get through. It also feeds future plant life.

I am a conventional farmer not organic but that is my advise. The term organic has been overused and abused. Even us convention farmers who do use chemical weed killers are organic. That is nature.

Hope this helps,

Happy gardening!
