So my wife and I just built our raised garden this weekend, and now need about 120 cubic feet of soil to fill in our boxes. Does anyone know of a good company to buy wholesale soil/manure/other (rather than 60+ bags of miracle grow). Perhaps even one that will deliver?

I've heard (and could absolutely be wrong) that Barela's goes out to the Water Authority composting site and picks up compost - and then turns around and sells it.  Buyer beware.

I believe several companies do so.

I have a large goat pen area that needs to be cleaned out. I wonder if people would be willing to come with their buckets and bags and help me do it! The soil is indeed very rich, and most of it below the top layer has mixed in well with the dirt.
Both Barelas and Western Organic/Soilutions are good choices on Bates Road, South Second Street. Bring a tarp for both under the load for cleanout and on top of the load for transport.
