FREE Compost as part of the 13th Annual Spring Plant Sale

We are excited to share that we will have FREE compost to share with the community as part of the 13th Annual Spring Plant Sale. The compost has been donated to Petaluma Bounty from Zero Waste Sonoma. All plant sale customers will be able to pick up compost during their shopping time slot. It will also be open to the public on Sunday April 23rd from 2 to 4 pm.

There is a 1/2 yard maximum per household (approximately the size of a pickup truck bed). We will have shovels, wheelbarrows, and pitch forks available but ask everyone to bring your own containers and/or bags to transport the compost.

    This is wonderful to get some free compost! I’m wondering if the set up is in such a way that Id be able to load the compost directly into my truck bed vs into bags.
    If I need to put it into bags, what size and how many bags would constitute 1/2 a yard? Thanks for any info you can help me with.

    Hello Leslie, if you come after 2 pm on Sunday, we might be able to have people drive through. It’ll depend on how busy it is and the number of pedestrians. Your best bet for loading directly into the truck would be to come to Compostpalooza on April 15th to get compost ( If the 23rd works best, we will have wheelbarrows you can use to move compost from the pile to a truck if it is busy!
