WEB EXTRA: Step right up and get your compost Saturday in Courtenay

Rotarians will load your vehicle with Skyrocket compost this Saturday at the Driftwood Mall parking lot in Courtenay.

COMOX VALLEY ROTARIANS will sell Skyrocket compost April 6 at the Driftwood Mall parking lot in Courtenay.

Attention, gardeners!

Rotarians will stand by to load your vehicle with bags of locally made Skyrocket compost this Saturday (April 6) from 8 a.m. to noon at the Driftwood Mall parking lot.

Skyrocket compost has been shown to outgrow many other brands at the CVRD’s test garden. It is great for lawns and flower gardens. Come early as we expect to sell out.

Normally you have to buy it by the truckload but thanks to elbow grease it is available one day only for $5 per 30-litre bag. Rotarians load your car for you at their drive-thru.

All proceeds are used to fund Rotary education projects for the poor in Kenya as well as the local Scouts Canada Camp Gilwell.  Give your garden a boost using a local product and help Rotary do good in the world.
