Composting and Soil Health

  • UGA Extension Clayton County Front Conference Room Suite 40 Jonesboro, GA 30236 (map)

Gardeners have made compost and used it to improve their soil for generations. Compost can improve soil aeration and structure. When used as a mulch, compost conserves water, suppresses weeds, and helps manage soil temperature.  Join us to learn how to improve composting practices and strengthen soil health.
