Benefits of Organic Compost
Compost replenishes the soil and boosts your plants with nutrients, microorganisms, and organic matter, improves water retention, recycles organic resources, helps conserve landfill use, and pulls carbon out of the atmosphere.
WeAct is the primary organizer behind the free compost giveaways for Windsor residents. "We are a group of dedicated citizens in Windsor working to address the global climate emergency through local action," said group leader Bob Adams.
