    You could compost it I suppose.

    Re-use, add admendments, add compost. I haven't bought soil in years.

    I tend to reuse it and I am not an Organic grower. I have never had any problems.

    I heard on some growers that they don't recommend using the game soil but I still agree with everyone here. My Couz is using the same soil for his forth harverst and every yield has the same result. No problems.

    I've been working it into my veggie garden as that soil needs lots of loosening.
