LET'S KEEP EAST AMWELL'S WATER SUPPLY CLEAN
A compost bin can be purchased at your local garden supply store or you can make your own. Compost is most commonly made from household garbage, yard and kitchen waste. Making compost reduces landfills while improving your plants and trees without causing polluting run-off from fertilizer. If you have quantities of manure from horses or livestock, composting your manure is an important farm management practice.
For guidance contact the Hunterdon Soil Conservation District and/or the Narural Resources Conservation Service at 908-788-9466
