Grab your bags and shovels and prepare to get dirty for a Valley-wide compost giveaway.

The City of Tempe is having the event at their compost facility on Saturday from 7 to 11 a.m. and it’s for everyone!

They have different grades of compost, some perfect for gardens, some perfect for landscape.

Take your own bags or containers and you can take as much compost as you want.

Be prepared to shovel your own compost, but there will be staff there to help load trucks and answer questions.
