What is Composting?

Composting is nature's process of recycling decomposed organic materials into a rich soil known as compost. Anything that was once living will decompose. Basically, backyard composting is an acceleration of the same process nature uses. By composting your organic waste you are returning nutrients back into the soil in order for the cycle of life to continue. Finished compost looks like soil–dark brown, crumbly and smells like a forest floor.

Why Should You Compost?

Composting is an important part of the world, without it, we might be a worthless wasteland of a world! Composting works when certain types of wasted food and trash, as well as dead animals, go into the ground and turn into nutrient-rich soil. It's extremely good for the environment, and helps to fertilize the plants.


DON"T FORGET, SOMETHING COMPOSTED IS A PLANT SAVED!!!!!!!!!!!
