The Soul of Your Soil

Compost is the Soul of our Soil.

Compost is decomposed natural material.Composting is a natural process of recycling organic material in a way to speed up natures natural process of creating this Organic Black Gold. Nature takes nearly 500 years to create only a few inches of this miracle soil!

With the help of man, we can speed up the process and utilize this precious gift of the Divine!

Compost should be added each planting season to refresh the microbes that live in the soil for a variety of beneficial reasons (see below!)

The ground’s generosity takes in our compost and grows beauty! Try to be more like the ground.
