Compost and Mulch Benefits


Compost is organic material that can be added to soil to help plants grow and improve water retention. Similarly, adding mulch as a top dressing will reduce evaporation and saves water. 

The compost is made from Healdsburg's green waste container contents which are delivered to Cold Creek Compost in Hopland to be processed.

The mulch is provided by MIX Garden located in Healdsburg. We are offering an Arbor mulch that is made of hardwoods such as oak and holly.
