Three cheers for Los Angeles!

8 years ago

While Buffalo was crawling out from under the snow this November afternoon, it was sunny in the 70s in LA. I took a drive to the Griffith Park Compost Facility. I planned on picking up some free mulch, like their informative website told me about (, but lo and behold, there's also compost. It's made from tree trimmings and other stuff from the park, along with a whole lot of zoo manure and solid waste from sewage. Guaranteed safe! The smell is very ... rich. A little on the manure side. The pile is quite hot in the middle, which I guess means it's not completely finished yet.

There're also 10 other locations around our fair city which have mulch but not compost regularly delivered and dropped in a pile for anyone to pick up.
