One of our favorite magazine, Biocycle, knows the situation in California. They’ve addressed our hottest (pun intended) issue farmers are facing. Luckily, compost can help. Check out their latest article pointing out another of the many benefits of compost: drought resistance. Recycled Organics as Drought Resilience Tools.
Biocycle has always been aware of water issues, so if you’d like more information on how recycled organics can help with your water problems, see their 2014 article on the subject here
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:

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.
