Compost helps foster living soil which promotes water infiltration and reduces runoff at the same time it purifies water. Locally recycled, the compost is made of green landscape trimmings to reduce material sent to the landfill. Listed by OMRI, it is used by Organic growers and adds slow release nutrients to make your plants thrive!
Call 800-262-4167 and tell them you want to support Surfrider Ocean Friendly Gardens when ordering.

Learn to create a waterwise garden from the ground up using an integrated approach: soil organics, appropriate plants and efficient irrigation. Begin by learning how to manage soils and soil organics as a powerful tool for water efficiency. Compost works with microbes in our soils to capture, store, and transport limited water resources to satisfy your plants' needs. Next, they will discuss the enormous palette of waterwise plants suited to our region. With so many beautiful plants to choose from, learn how to combine plants to achieve year-round color and interest. Finally, they will cover the most up-to-date irrigation technologies and methods including how to retrofit existing irrigation, how to install a new irrigation system, and how to manage the water support your new, waterwise garden.
