Want free compost? Need an entire garden makeover? Seattle area Cedar Grove Compost is offering ways you might win both. Here’s how…

A rep from Seattle area Cedar Grove Compost just got in touch asking me to remind local readers that now through early April, Cedar Grove is giving back bags of compost — just in time to mulch your beds for Spring.

“As part of Cedar Grove?s commitment to composting Seattle?s yard waste for almost 20 years, Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and Cedar Grove have partnered to thank City of Seattle residents for diverting over 125,000 tons of food and yard waste from landfills by composting in 2011. Today, Cedar Grove and SPU are kicking off the Big Dig.

From March 26 ? April 11, Seattleites can find Corey the Compostable Apple Core at 30 different retail and community sites throughout Seattle. Clues to Corey?s location will be posted daily on Cedar Grove?s website….

Every person that finds at least one Corey will win a coupon redeemable for a free bag of Cedar Grove Compost. Additionally, all participants will be entered into a daily drawing to win a pass to participate in The Big Dig finals happening on Saturday, April 14 at Seattle Tilth?s Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands. Finalists will dig through 30 yards of compost to find $6,000 in hidden treasures, including a $3,000 yard makeover….”

Looks like with just a little bit of effort, everybody wins!

    my wife have recently gone into a wheelchair after a spine opperation we have also recently moved to a new home more suitable for her and we have a very large flat garden is there any way we could do her a surprise makeover for the garden

  2. Dean, you’re welcome to follow the links to the Cedar grove contest & try your hand. Though, I think the contest is for the greater Seattle, WA area. Looks like you’re in the UK. Certainly, you could DIY a surprise for her. Best of luck!
