hey everybody - are there any gardeners out there?
I got some really awesome compost at the natural state expo, but it was only enough for one small pot. I need to re pot a rather sick plant, and I'm thinking about starting a garden once it warms up a bit anyway, so I was wondering if anybody could suggest a place to find compost - preferably free.
I know the city landfill composts yard waste, but they sell it by the ton! I don't need that much, just a bit, but I don't know where to find it and finances are limited. has anybody bought from the landfill before? is it even open in january? I'm very new to gardening and I'd compost on my own, but I don't know how yet and I think my parents would object to a large pile of rotting stuff in their yard, especially since I don't know what I'm doing and would probably screw it up somehow.
any advice would be appreciated. any organic gardeners out there in need of help, let me know. I'd love to learn.
