Free Compost For Food Independence

It’s Spring and that means it’s time to declare your food independence by kicking off your garden! Join the City of Eureka, Recology, and Cooperation Humboldt as we join forces to ensure everyone has access to nutritional food and is empowered to grow their own!

We are offering free compost to help kick start your veggie garden this Spring. All you need to do is show up with a shovel and container and take what you need. Compost is a nutritional amendment that helps supplement your soil so plants have all the nutrients they need to grow yummy fruits and vegetables.

  • This event is first come first served until we run out.

We will be offering free native plants such as seaside daisy, broadleaf lupine, beach buckwheat, red columbine, and checkerbloom.

Planting native helps our local pollinators! We are also working to provide you some veggie plants! We welcome anyone who wants to share some seeds for a seed exchange. Bring some extra seeds to contribute and take some seeds you would love to grow!

This compost is made from food waste from Bay Area Recology customers. Plants love it and you will too!
