Free Compost Available for Resident Vegetable Gardeners 
It's almost spring. Is your green thumb itching to dig in the dirt and plant vegetables to enjoy this spring and summer?

Four community partners are hosting piles of manure that are free for resident-gardeners.

The City's Public Service crews delivered the aged manure compost to four drop sites on Tuesday, March 9. Vegetable gardeners are welcome to come and self-load. Please limit your share to 1/2 truckload per household, and bring your own shovel.

The manure is aged, so it doesn’t smell and is pathogen- and virus-free. Plus, it is great for helping your garden grow.

Please visit the community hosts during business hours, if listed. Otherwise, please load during weekday daylight hours and avoid weekends, if possible. Donations to the host non-profits are appreciated but not required.
