Composting is an all-important first step in the improvement of soil. Microbes in compost cycle organic molecules which, in turn, feed your garden.
Our compost is created by mixing restaurant food scraps with woody waste. It is processed by thermophyllic (hot) composting in large mechanically-turned piles. The entire process takes 3-6 months then the compost is cured then sifted through 1/2" screen. It is packaged to-order in breathable bags to maximize the activity of soil microbes.
Steel City Soils has pledged to support urban farming through the creation of a Food Waste Recovery Program. This system is an affordable way to collect food waste from restaurants and distribute compost for urban farming and backyard gardening.
The finished product, compost, can be purchased from us directly. Improve your soil and support our efforts by buying our compost products listed below.
