Compost with a kick!

Activated Compost is made from recycled plant material with an added nutrient blend to feed veggies, trees, lawns, flower beds, and more! This aerobic plant-based compost contains all the biology and organic matter found in nature. It has thousands more species of beneficial bacteria and fungi than are cultured in a lab. Not only is Activated Compost the product around which we built Purple Cow Organics, but it is OMRI Listed and used in professional agricultural and horticultural organic crop production. It can be used with any soil to replenish existing soils, build organic matter and biological value, and as a component for home crafted growing medias.
