Why Compost?

Location: Full Circle Farm in Carnation, Washington
Featuring: Jessica and Andrew

Compost is a great recycler. It takes "waste materials" and creates a necessary and vital resource: top soil.

Composed of unused vegeatles, coffee chaff, dairy manure, horse manure, and organic compostable materials, Full Circle Farm's compost provides nutrients that feeds the soils for up to 3 years, increases the organic matter content and promotes benefical organisms, improves soil structure, reduces dependence of synthetic fertilizers, and, overall, increases soil fertility.
