Growing Your Own Food? Get Free Compost In Okotoks!

There are plenty of reasons that help explain why so many others have started growing their own food, and why you should as well. The fact that you’re controlling the chemicals in the food is important to some, while being able to contribute to local initiatives, reduce the environmental impact you have, and much more. In Ranchers’ Rise, many residents have gardens in their backyard- you can too!

As such, those growing their own foods in backyard gardens or even in containers on their deck or in their lawn will be able to reap a lot more than just delicious rewards. Of course, a lot of work can go into the process of growing your own food and as a result it’s important to get all the help you can find. Compost is a must for home gardeners, and the Okotoks Recycling Centre is now offering free compost in Okotoks to those who need it.

The Difference Composting Makes

Composting offers tremendous benefits that include:

  • A healthier garden
  • Organic fertilizer with reduced need for chemicals to be used
  • Fewer weeds
  • Better water retention within the soil
  • Tremendous boost of vital garden nutrients

And more. Plus, when you add in the fact that food or yard waste makes up about half of the garbage from our country’s homes, it becomes clear that composting is a viable way to reduce the overall footprint you have on the environment.

Your Free Compost

Now, the Okotoks Recycling Centre is giving away free compost to anyone who needs it – just show up with a shovel, a container, and transportation and you can get the compost your crops need. The Centre is located at 100-1118 North Railway Street and supplies are limited, so once the compost is gone it’s gone.

Even though it’s fall, the season isn’t over yet and there are plenty of reasons to use compost for crops and other projects around the home.  Whether you’ve lived here a while or are looking into new homes and real estate in Okotoks, you very well may need good compost. It’s completely free, and the benefits are so tremendous that anyone who grows their own food will want to take advantage of this offer.
