What's not organic about poop? Why is no poop a selling point? I like poop, it makes the world go round.

Not knowing what was in the food waste that is being used isn't my idea of organic. For sure most of the food was grown using synthetic fertilizers and what pesticides were used. Not completely against all synthetics but many pesticides are not on our list of good stuff. Thoughts on that please. Good growing.

Buy "organic", use waste from that and don't worry. Me? Other than clippings from manicured lawns I'm quite happy to use anything compostable. Better soil means happier plants and more of my own "waste" available for future dirt. It takes a lot of raw material to make a bucketful of black gold...

If they speak the truth then it could be a good product although a bit on the expensive side since horse and dairy compost is offered for free around here, just drop by and pick up. Some even will do large loading. Thanks Tony, this product may be very useful for many who don't have access to other sources.
