100% Locally Sourced, Handmade Compost
Our compost is made from organic waste collected from small businesses, farmer's markets, our public drop off, and community organizations. We chop it down and mix it up with wood chips from a local tree company and clean sawdust from friendly wood shops. It's perfect for growing vegetables, herbs and also for jump starting soil remediation of backyards and toxic landscapes. For tips on using BK ROT compost, click here.

Pick-up Outside Our Site
BK ROT compost is available for pick-up at our site at Know Waste Lands Garden (1309 Dekalb Ave). Due to high demand, we are now accepting compost orders through an online form. We will fulfill orders on a rolling basis.
For orders less than 1/2 CY, due to COVID-19 we ask you to wait outside the garden and our team will bring our compost outside to you. If ordering bulk compost, we recommend you bring your own bags/containers in case are out of burlap bags.
For large orders 1/2 CY and above, we ask that people bring their own containers and support in the bagging process following our COVID protocols below. Our Sunday team is responsible for both sifting and managing drop off, however if they have capacity they can support with the bagging process. Currently we are not fulfilling orders above 1CY.
