Matt: In Denver, I've found a "landscaping" yard that carries several kinds
of compost in bulk - $20.00 for a pick up truck full. You might check for
this -- I'm sure landscapers have a wholesale source in AZ.
My ultimate goal is to make enough of it myself that I don't have to buy
it-- my neighbor farmer gives me manure free,as he has more than he needs
and I mix it with non-seed bearing weeds, pulled up plantings, and leaves.
