Compost Database

Post  davidclubb on 10/31/2010, 12:15 am

Just posting this suggestion, so others can throw it around. If we want to have a variety of compost sources, one good way would be to have a database of businesses that sell different types of compost. Whoever is in charge of setting up the database for vermiculite vendors, should also set up a database of compost vendors.

Hi Davidclubb-

The reason there is a vermiculite database is mostly because it is much harder to find. Compost is all around us in tons of different ways.

If you search the forum for some of the compost threads, or even some of the MM threads you can glean loads of ideas there.

We were really fortunate to have someone volunteer hours and hours for several months to getting the vermiculite database up and running...

That would have been Wardinwake. He is currently without a functioning computer at home, so he uses the library's computer to check-in on the forum occasionally and to keep the vermiculite database up-to-date.

Buying compost is a crap shoot! yahoo Quality is inconsistent from the producers. Just because I bought some good stuff from a store, it doesn't mean the next shipment will be just as good.

Finding a great deal on quality compost is topical information that would be best shared in the regional forums.
