Compost is black gold!  Using compost has countless benefits for both the environment and your garden:

  • You save money by producing a free, high-quality soil amendment
  • Compost promotes lush growth and higher yields for both indoor and outdoor plants
  • compost is an organic way to rebuild our depleted soil
  • The application of compost minimizes loss of soil by 86%.
  • It reduces the volume of materials that might otherwise be disposed of in landfills or trash incinerators (food loss and waste contribute an estimated 8-10% of global greenhouse gas emissions) 

Composting is the best way to grow amazing plants, rebuild our soil, and love our environment!
