United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees Ian Rinehart, Theresa Corless, Tasha Lo Porto delivered compost to the Vallejo People’s Garden with our faithful compost turner, Ravi (in bin) . Why we compost: It enriches the soil, helping to retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. It encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material. Healthy soil, healthy plants, healthy people! 🌱 . Thank you USDA for volunteering your time at the Vallejo People's Garden !
