Compost scare

Here's one reason we're happy to make our own compost:
The Chittenden Solid Waste District released a statement on Friday evening alleging that the trace amounts of herbicide in its Green Mountain Compost this spring has also been found in six compost products from five local companies.
Why does this matter?
The district had seven other local compost products tested as part of an effort to figure out why its compost caused plants to die-off this summer.
