What You Can Do at Home & In The Yard
Nature recycles dead organic material by breaking it down, with the help of microorganisms and invertebrate decomposers, into a soil enriching amendment called compost. Compost is made whether or not we are involved in the process, but there are things we can do to ensure it happens rapidly and without odors.
Pacific Community Park is located at 1515 NE 164th Street in Vancouver, WA. The park is a 56-acre recreational area that includes an off-leash dog park, extreme sports park, walking trails, and a Naturally Beautiful Backyards demo site. The demonstration gardens are meant to show homeowners different ways to practice earth-friendly techniques at home. Natural gardening reduces the use of synthetic chemicals in order to increase beneficial organism activity, enhances habitat and wildlife areas, and contributes to the overall health of the community.
