Gunnison Gold Compost

Gunnison Gold Compost

What is Gunny Gold?
"Gunny Gold" compost is a wastewater resource management product designed to recycle nitrogen-rich municipal sludge (biosolids) and carbon-rich waste from the wood products industry. Using a simple gravity filtration system, the microbial byproducts of the city sludge are dried and mixed with wood chips to create an organic fertilizer and soil conditioner of food chain quality.

This natural, organic compost is available to nurseries, garden centers, landscape industries, and retailers, as well as for industrial uses. It is great for building up soils, promoting healthy plant growth, and mitigating or controlling soil erosion.
