Happy New Year All. Building Soil is an important first step to growing a garden...while each of us has different space, skills and styles of gardening...others are just coming into the practice or dare I say the experiment of growing a garden. So whether a person or family has a garden, is planning one or expanding one...I thought it would be interesting to go and see what is available as "commercial compost". I've spoken with 2 local companies in the Boulder County area, Eco-Cycle and Western Disposal...both have offered to do group tours. I've also contacted A-1 Organics, but not heard back from them yet. Hoping that we can pick a weekend early in March for this...please share your feedback and interest. By visiting and questioning the methods of others...we can still learn and discover what we will to help us determine how best to compost on our own.
