Free Compost – Public Works Giving Away Goodies for the Garden

Environmental Programs and Operations is giving away compost!  This is a self-haul event so bring a shovel – residents are responsible for shoveling and bagging their own compost in garbage bags, yard waste bags, reusable containers, pick-up bed, or trailer. Come to the Bill Botts Park – Ropes Course Parking Lot at  9800 Jefferson Blvd.

How do o best  use this compost in a garden? Compost is ready to go but recommended to be mixed with topsoil or another gardening fill. For best growing results, a 60/40 split (60% topsoil and 40% compost) is recommended.

Where does this free compost come from? Athens Services, where every day is Earth Day! Athens Services is a waste collection and recycling company. Athens plays a key role of our local recycling loop by receiving Culver City organic material and creating beneficial soil amendments to help grow healthy foods. The compost material is OMRI Listed (Organic Materials Review Institute) and licensed by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) and it is approved to be used in agricultural operations that are certified organic under the USDA National Organic Program.

Saturday, July 13 from 8 am to 3 pm.
