It's Alive! Soil Health in Your Backyard

Here are a few tips from Tilth Alliance. Composting at home reduces waste, adds nutrients back to the soil, and grows better tomatoes! 


 
Make Compost at Home

Leaves, chopped stalks, flowers, and grass all make great compost in a pile or bin - just add water, keep it moist, and wait six months! Vegetable kitchen scraps also make good compost but should be composted in a worm bin or other rodent resistant container to prevent pest problems


Mulch it

Mulch is a layer of organic material like leaves, wood chips, compost, or grass clippings that you spread in spring or fall around your plants. Mulch conserves water, prevents weeds, and feeds the soil for healthier plants

 

By making simple changes in how we care for our soil we can save money, protect the environment, conserve water, grow healthy plants!!!
