How to use our compost

Why choose our compost?

Unlike most store-bought compost mixes, our premium compost is a concentrated fertilizer that is meticulously crafted from food scraps and other organic matter. Instead of rushing the final product, we let our finished compost cure for at least 2 months so it can age to perfection.

Why Compost?

Benefits of Composting

It’s no mystery that landfills are filling up and will continue to do so unless we take action. About 30% of the average household waste can be composted (and another 30% can be recycled). By composting and recycling, you can reduce your landfill waste by about 60%.

Almost no landfills are designed to properly handle organic waste like food scraps and yard trimmings. When these materials go into a landfill, they decompose in an anaerobic environment (without oxygen) which produces Methane, a Greenhouse Gas that is 4x worse than Carbon Dioxide. 

Compost helps soil retain moisture by increasing organic matter, improving soil structure, reducing compaction, and balancing nutrient content. Its rich organic composition acts like a sponge, absorbing and holding water for plant roots. The enhanced soil structure, with increased pore spaces, allows better water penetration and reduces runoff. Compost also promotes deeper root growth, making plants more resilient during dry periods, and helps prevent soil erosion, preserving valuable topsoil and nutrients.

For growth, plants need macronutrients like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium (NPK). But plants also take up other micronutrients from the soil like vitamins and nutrients that humans need to be healthy. Many large crops use synthetic NPK fertilizers to grow crops, but neglect to add micronutrients back to the soil. Luckily, compost takes the leftover nutrients from our food and yard waste and recycles them back into the soil to be used over and over again.
