Tacoma’s TAGRO

Made and sold by the City, TAGRO (short for Tacoma Grow) are organic lawn and garden products for landscaping, vegetable gardens, and indoor container gardens.  The City makes about 32,000 cubic yards of TAGRO a year by recycling thousands of tons of biosolids and then sells the products at low-cost to commercial and residential users across Tacoma to encourage environmentally-friendly landscaping and gardening practices.  The City also maintains a demonstration garden at its central wastewater plant and donates its produce to area food banks.
