I found a great guy on Craigslist who has 8 horses and lives less than a mile from me. Since we live in the city, he has to haul their 'contributions' to the landfill. I've been helping him with that by taking full truckloads home with me. He loads them with his miniature tractor/loader and saves the cost and hassle of hauling them out to the dump.

I compost them with food waste from a nearby grocery store. They let me park a large covered trash bin and they happily fill it with vegetative waste from the produce section. I pick it up every two days.

I also add lawn clippings from my neighbor's lawn service (they love not having to find a dumpster somewhere!) and with leaves from the neighbors.

I figure we've produced about 6 cubic yards of finished compost over the last couple of years. Cost? Next to nothing. Benefit? It's turned my worthless, inorganic minerals-only desert dirt into rich, dark sweet-smelling water-holding soil teaming with worms and bacterial life.

My plants love it.

My soil amendments are to buy a load of city composted yard waste to cover my raised beds. I dump about two to three inches of this Omigrow stuff on my established beds and fill the new beds with 8 inches of it for the new gardening year. With that and straw for mulch, plants are strong and healthy all year long.
