I stopped by a local city green waste plant today and asked for a copy of their soil test for their compost. I don't think it is very common out here by how they acted. They were amused by my interest. Anyhow, I was explaining to them the reason I was interested (organic lawn care % other applications) and they quickly replied that unfortunately their compost could not be used in 'certified' organic programs because they cannot control nor trace where the source materials came from. They said the sources must be organic certified for the compost to be organic certified... and out here there just ins't the organic infrastructure to support that. So for those of you currently offering organic lawn care services which include compost, do you find a local 'approved organic' compost.. or get your own composting materials from certified organic farms/dairies? No response is understood.
