Compost Happens

Top 3 reasons to compost:
1. It's fun.
2. It's a free garden amendment.
3. You get to recycle your yard and kitchen waste.

The Tucson Organic Gardeners have compost bins available. The style depends upon our suppliers, but all work quite well.  We sell them at cost recovery prices so these are a bargain. We also have compost cranks.
