thought i'd share my 6 compost sources as they're readily available in my small town (newark ohio) and hopefully, this will help others find sources, too who are struggling.




walmart has:

scott's premium topsoil (read the ingredients! - it's a blend of compost and some peat moss!)

mushroom compost

organic humus and manure




home depot has:

moo-nure




tsc tractor supply center has

garden compost

cedar's lawn and garden (it's a small family owned garden center in newark ohio) has

chicken manure



peat moss was easily found at:

lowe's
home depot
walmart
meijers
tsc
cedars lawn and garden

vermiculite (coarse) was found cheapest at:

cedars lawn and garden (under $20 for 4 cu ft bag)

i do hope this is helpful as folks are beginning their journey finding the ingredients for mel's mix. in his book he recommends a minimum of 5 compost sources for best outcome.
