Give Your Garden a Boost!

Give your garden a boost with organic compost created right here in University City from fallen leaves and food waste. Come to The Dirt Factory on Saturday, May 18, from 10 am to 2 pm, and take up to 10 gallons of compost for free!  While you’re there, take a tour to see how compost is made.  Plus, from 11 am to noon, learn how to make your own compost and, from 1 to 2 pm, hear about vegetable gardening with compost. The Dirt Factory is located at 4308 Market Street.
