Is the soil amendment safe to use in my home garden?

One of the benefits of this program is the access it gives residents to a nutrient-rich soil amendment. It is important to note that although the amendment is partially decomposed, it still needs to mature and does not have the same characteristics as finished compost. FoodCycler recommends the user add it directly to their soil a few weeks before planting or further process it in a well-managed backyard compost system. Fuller instructions can be found in your Program Guide. If you would like more information on the end product of the pre-treatment appliance, please click here.
