This nutrient rich compost is entirely from tree trimmings and yard waste. The raw product is ground up using a industrial wood grinder similar to a yard chipper one might find only 200 times bigger. The product is then piled up and using water and stirring it up once in a while the healthy microorganisms go to work creating the aerobic composting . This process typically takes up 90 days. The product is then screened "sifted" to separate the larger product from the fine compost. Panacea Fine Compost is typically used as a soil amendment blended into the existing soil to enhance its growing capacity.
