SOIL

Brooks Contractor
Goldstien, NC
(919)-837-5914
The very best soil is from Brooks Contractor in Goldstien, NC. We used it for
Greensboro Montessori School, The Meeting Place orchard and the Edible
Schoolyard. Their trucks transport large quantities, 15-14 cubic yards at a time. Soil
for an entire home, school or park would cost $500 and it’s worth it. It is a living soil.
Call 919-837-5914 and ask for Amy. They offer two mixes, 50-50 and 70-30.

Black Sand
