spreading compost

As part of Celebrate Water! at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, Master Gardeners, watch for Bill Swantner and Lynne Yee who will be onsite using a rain simulator to highlight the benefits of regularly adding organic matter and compost to soil.

They will demonstrate that soil which has been amended with compost has more water holding capacity than soil with no amendments added, resulting in reduced water use in the landscape. Bill and Lynne will also explain the numerous benefits including plant health, less water run-off, and less fertilizer requirements with regular compost added.

Free admission for SABOT members. General adult admission $22, children $15, children under 3 are free. $20 military or student with valid ID.
