City of Sebastopol to offer free compost for Earth Day

The Sebastopol Climate Action Committee and the City of Sebastopol will be hosting an Earth Day Organic Compost Giveaway on Sunday, Apr. 24, 2022. This free event is open to home and school gardeners from the Sebastopol to Occidental area.

Home and school gardeners are invited to come to the compost pick up site with shovels, gloves, a tarp and a car with containers or a pick-up truck prepared to load their own compost. Volunteers will be on hand to assist with parking at the compost site. People in need of loading help should let the onsite volunteers know they will need assistance.

Gardeners throughout Sonoma County are encouraged to attend compost giveaways in their closest town. Zero Waste Sonoma, along with cities and local groups are planning events throughout much of the county to aid in getting compost into gardens for spring. A few of the planned events are; Santa Rosa - TBD, Healdsburg - Wednesday May 4th, and Cotati – TBD, late May. Check the Zero Waste Sonoma calendar for compost at https://zerowastesonoma.gov/calendar.

The Sebastopol Climate Action Committee is a group of dedicated citizens and city council members in Sebastopol working to address the global climate emergency through local action. The compost event is compliments of the City of Sebastopol, Sebastopol Climate Action Committee, Zero Waste Sonoma, and Napa Recycling & Waste Services.
