Contained broken glass
Contained broken glass and other bits of plastic. How is this organic or even safe?!?!
by SG
Wires&plastic mixed into Organic soil
The product claims to be premium organic soil, but I would have to disagree. There should not be shredded bits of hard plastic and electrical wires mixed into the bags of soil being sold to consumers. Especially the product is marketed as organic!

Good garden soil (mulch).
I bought 30 bags to use in my raised garden bed and found no trash nor any large chunks. The image the site includes is a little misleading to how fine it is ground up so I included a photo of my bed. Waiting until spring to start my garden but it looks to be of adequate size to ease root growth and water permeation. I also did not experience a manure odor that others have complained about. It smelled of natural soil compost, which is pretty pleasant to me.

Full of melted plastic pieces
I bought two bags of this product for the first time today and both bags were littered with melted plastic bags, pieces of hard plastic, clear plastic shards, wire, what look to be old kitchen twist ties, and a wrapper from hard candy. Sections of the "soil" appear to have been in a fire as they are gray and ashy in color. NOT what I call organic! What chemicals may be present??

MUCH better than Kellogg version
I bought 120 cu ft (60 bags) of Kellogg Organic soil mix for my new large raised bed garden, after reading some bad reviews of this soil (Miracle Grow Nature's Care Organic raised bed soil), now I wish I would have gone back to MG Nature's Care. In Kellogg's mix, my sprouts have died or haven't grown AT ALL & seeds planted directly have not grown beyond sprout stage in 2.5 months. Transplanted one of the plants into another raised bed with Miracle Grow Nature's Care Organic Raised Bed soil and it has taken off amazingly well. (see pics) Save yourself the time, effort and money... get the Miracle Grow version. I want my money back. Now I have to figure out the most cost effective way to amend this Kellogg mix trash to make it hospitable to plants.

Full of Garbage
Just added four bags of this stuff to our beds. Wish I had paid more attention as it was going in, as I would have noticed that the "soil" has an absurd mix of garbage throughout. Some highlights from the attached image which shows what I picked out of the top layer of soil: chunks of plastic, shredded plastic bags, a piece of a circuit board(!), part of a note with a warning about metal content... How can this possibly be considered organic??? Extremely disappointed and won't be buying this ever again.

So unhappy
The gnats are overwhelming. I’ve been bitten badly and the itching is insane. Now, I’ve noticed what I believe to be is a fungus of some type starting in the soil around the beans. Nowhere else. I have 2 above ground planters that are large. I don’t want my crop ruined. I took a photo below. Does anyone know what this is and what to do? I’m so upset.

Biggest waste of money.
I built multiple raised beds and used only this soil in them. I probably bought around 30 bags so I spent a lot of money, but I wanted to start my garden off right. Any plants planted in them, stopped growing. Anything planted from seed would die after they sprouted. Meanwhile plants planted in the regular dirt from my yard flourished. So disappointing. What did grow well from the soil well was a lot of mushrooms. I get those a lot.
