Free Compost Giveaway for San Ramon Residents Saturday, September 18, 8 a.m. – noon

Compost Giveaway

Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow.

Mixing compost into your soil:

  • Adds valuable nutrients to your soil, acting as a natural slow release fertilizer for plants and microbes
  • Reduces the need for pesticides and synthetic fertilizers
  • Enriches soil and promotes healthy plant growth (more fruit and vegetables – tastier, too!)
  • Helps to regulate and neutralize the acid and alkaline levels in your soil
  • Saves water: nutrient rich soil requires less irrigation
  • Healthy root growth in your garden means less erosion
  • Plants grown in compost-amended soil tend to be more resilient to diseases, pests, and fungi

Stop by Forest Home Farms (19553 San Ramon Valley Blvd) on Saturday, September 18 between 8 a.m. and noon for a compost giveaway! Limit 1 cubic foot bag per car, available while supplies last. Proof of San Ramon residency is required.
