OPC believes passionately in fertilizer reduction. So much so, we’ll loan you a spreader!
Compost/mulch spreaders can be a game changer for amending soil, helping make the job faster and more uniform. The Coalition is offering use of a compost/mulch spreader free of charge to its members.
The spreader is manufactured by Landzie and consists of a metal drum made of screening material. Simply open the drum, fill it about ½ full with compost, close the hatch, and roll the drum over your lawn or garden. The fine compost is evenly distributed and any larger material remains in the drum from which it can easily be discarded. Compost is available free at the Orleans Transfer Station to residents with stickers. You can also find bag compost at local garden centers or in bulk from local vendors. Pick what is best for you with the knowledge that you are acting as a responsible steward of our waters.
