Home Compost/ Vermicompost

Composting is nature's way of recycling. It is a satisfying way to turn fruit, vegetable and yard trimmings into a dark, crumbly, sweet smelling soil conditioner. Composting is easy, it's smart, it's recycling.

• Saves you money by lowering garbage bills and replacing store-bought soil conditioners.
• Helps garden and house plants by improving the fertility and health of your soil.
• Saves water by helping the soil hold moisture and reducing water runoff.
• Benefits the environment by recycling valuable organic resources and extending the life of our landfills.
