Buying Our Compost — Returning the organics to the soil

Black Bear Composting is proud to offer two compost products!

Black Bear Compost Black Bear Garden Blend
finished compost garden blend
Screened to 3/8", our compost is made from local food scraps, leaves and greenwaste. Makes an outstanding soil amendment that improves soil health — naturally.

Black Bear Compost is US Composting Council's Seal of Testing Assurance certified and meets their parameters for improving soil for fruits & vegetables, trees & shrubs and lawns.
60% Black Bear Compost and 40% local topsoil makes a wonderful blend for starting new raised beds, tree planting and all-around landscaping soil.

Note that the topsoil portion of this blend is not guaranteed to be weed free since it was not heated to the same high temperatures as our compost was.
