It's an annual event that Cochrane gardeners look forward to. 

The free compost program is back once again. 

The compost pile will be at the town's lagoon site this year, which is next to Spray Lake Sawmills Centre. 

It will be available on May 6 and 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Cochranites are asked to bring their own shovels and pails.

Each vehicle will be allowed to leave with two full pails (approx. 40L or 30kg).
