Benefits:
**Provides essential nutrients (N-P-K), organic matter and minerals
**Enhances a diverse beneficial microbial population
**Increases water-holding capacity during dry periods and reduces runoff in wetter months
**Increases porosity in clay soils and makes them easier to work
**Increases nutrient storage in sandy soils
**Helps suppress soil borne diseases
**Increases plant growth while reducing fertilizing and watering needs
**Prevents soil compaction and erosion
**Improves overall soil structure making it easier to work, improving drainage and resultant root growth
**Decreases landfill dependence by recycling compost greens
**Increases air quality from increased tree and plant populations
**As a mulch, reduces weed growth

This product is made from recycled green waste and food waste.
