I've been doing a lot of woodworking lately with some beautiful salvaged redwood and thusly, mass amounts of sawdust have been generated. Ive been throwing the dust in our compost pile and in our chicken coop but today on a whim I tried mixing some with some nasty native clay soil.
To my surprise, a small amount of dust had a significant effect on the texture of the soil and made the unusable clay soil into beautiful aerated potting soil.
What do you folks think? Any detrimental effects as this wood breaks down? This seems like a pretty positive break through for our little growing operation
