Celebrate Manure Day

 

 

Manure and earthworms are the best fertilizer for a garden. Whether it be a lawn, a flower, vegetable, or herb garden natural fertilizer can't be beat.

On March 15, 2008 Little Creek Farm Conservancy in DeKalb County, Georgia, held it's first of two "Manure Days" of the year. For a small fee visitors can buy a bag full or a pickup full of nature's best fertilizer. March is also the perfect month for the celebration since March is the Earthworm Moon month.

The fertilizer is composted horse manure and is ready to be spread directly onto garden beds and fields. Earthworms will love the additional food and be attracted to the garden. Earthworms help revitalize dead soils and help reduce weeds in addition to adding food for growing plants.
