This article highlights an exciting pilot project on the financial benefits of carbon sequestration through compost application. The Gold Ridge Resource Conservation District (RCD) conducted the project to explore the potential of compost in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. The results were impressive, demonstrating that compost can significantly reduce the costs of fertilizers and other inputs while improving crop yields. This is great news for farmers and anyone interested in sustainable agriculture practices as it provides a cost-effective solution to address pressing environmental issues. On top of all that, this is yet another source of funding to help you get better crops for less money.
Cold Creek Compost is a proud partner of WeAct (Windosor Earth Action Climate Team). Just recently, we donated compost to help put on a free organic compost giveaway. It was a huge success, so next week, it will be happening again! We couldn’t resist joining the effort to spread compost and compost knowledge in our community. Here are some details:

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 a group of dedicated citizens in Windsor working to address the global climate emergency through local action.
This is the North Coast’s longest running and most widely attended wine industry event for grape growers and vintners, and Martin and the newest member of the Cold Creek team, Cody, had the pleasure of spending the day conversing and educating on how Cold Creek Compost’s products allow them to Buy Less, Spread Less, and Grow More.
Our booth gave attendees the opportunity to get a literal feel for our Agrow-Blend compost and provided plenty of nutrient and ingredient information on our planter mix products. See the photo below for a glimpse into our experience at this lovely event.
