They say that all that is gold does not glitter – and in the case of Rhody Gold, that’s certainly true. The Original Gold is a compost made from a mixture of local materials: food scraps and coffee grounds to sawdust and wood chips. It’s produced by The Compost Plant, a commercial operation based out of Providence that is dedicated to making sustainable soil enhancers for local farmers and gardeners. But you don’t have to have a green thumb: Use it as a top dressing in your home or kitchen garden. Grab a bag from Newport Ace Hardware or Warwick Ace Hardware.
