The beauty of all that surrounds us in Ventura County: from the hills, orchards, fields, creeks and to our neighborhoods and where we work, every bit of it is in our Watersheds. We invite you to join the cities' and county's efforts to protect Ventura County’s Watersheds by being more aware of what is added to the land and the harm it can do as it is taken, through storm drains to the Ventura and Santa Clara Rivers, Malibu and Calleguas Creeks, the bays and estuaries – and eventually into the Pacific Ocean.
Why compost? For starters, it's an inexpensive, natural process that transforms your kitchen and garden waste into a valuable and nutrient rich food for your garden. It's easy to make and use. And a huge benefit is that it lowers the amount of materials going to your local landfill.
