Compost

Post  michellesmith4607 on 4/21/2013, 3:05 pm

I live near Chicago and was wondering if anyone knows of a place that you can go and pick up free compost? If so where?

I just bought my first house and also would like some easy ideas on starting my own compost, have never done this before and would like to try....How does one get started and how big of an area does one need?

Thanks in advance Michelle

glad you\'re here
While I can't tell you where to get compost in the Chicago area (Craigslist) we do have an entire forum dedicated to compost:
