    When will Solano County develop a composting program?

    That's a very good question. Compost is essential in amending or top dressing the adobe clay soil found locally to make it more porous so as to retain moisture so plants may grow better. You can buy compost locally but there should be a community source at the landfill too. Napa Garbage does that.
