What is Composting?
Composting is the natural breakdown of organics
material to a dark, loose soil-like substance
that will substantially enrich any garden.
Decomposition occurs with the assistance of
invertebrates like earthworks and microorganisms
like bacteria and fungi. Composting is
a form of recycling that occurs continually
in nature. It can significantly reduce
the amount of household waste we throw away
and at the same time provide a nutrient-rich
additive for soils.
Make your own soil-enriching compost by building
and maintaining a backyard compost pile with
leaves, grass and other organic materials.
