Spring Finished Compost Gift-Back

We are offering free finished compost to the customers who helped make it!

From 1:00–4:00 pm on Sunday May 9, 16, and 23, any Collective Resource Compost customer can claim up to 10 gallons of finished compost as our gift to you. You can also purchase additional compost for $5/5 gallons (cash or check only).

We’re able to do this, with the help of Healthy Soil Compost transporting the finished compost to The Talking Farm, who is graciously hosting our gift-back event at their Howard Street Farm. The finished compost has been processed by Organix Recycling, a state-certified, US Composting Council-certified processor, located on the far south side of Chicago.

This compost, packed with microorganisms and fungi, is ready for any type of crop, your victory garden or soil rehabilitation project! Mix it with 30–50% of another soil blend or apply 1-2 inches on top of existing soil.

Please register HERE by May 5, 2021.
