International Compost Awareness Week: a Perfect Time to Support Your Soil & PHS: City Harvest, too!
Compost provides soil with organic matter, nutrients and biology to grow healthy, nutritious food! Have some fun while checking how much biology is present in your garden soil by “planting” a pair of 100% cotton undies. Leave the waistband showing, and in 8 weeks try to pull them up out of your soil! If you get just the waistband, you have lots of hungry, beneficial microbes! More about #SoilYourUndies here….
Need more than a few buckets? Visit a participating Garden Center who will donate $3 per yard of compost purchased, and Laurel Valley Soils will MATCH that for a total of $6 per yard donated to PHS: City Harvest!
Here are several ways we can all help to feed our soil and feed our neighbors during ICAW:
