Does anyone know where in Philadelphia I can get FREE potting soil or top soil, and mulch? I want to start a garden in my backyard and I know some time ago there were places where u could actually go and get free potting soil, top soil, mulch, etc. But I don't know where I could find one today. Can anyone help?

The sewage treatment plant on State Rd in NE Philly has free mulch from time to time...not recommended for vegetables because it is made from a mix of sewage debris and household waste (from the pipes)

Try CraigsList under "free". I've seen people around here offer free dirt or soil to whoever picks it up first.
