While composting may seem mysterious, it is really a simple, natural process. The American Heritage Science Dictionary defines compost as "A mixture of decayed or decaying organic matter used to fertilize soil. Compost is usually made by gathering plant material, such as leaves, grass clippings, and vegetable peels, into a pile or bin and letting it decompose as a result of the action of aerobic bacteria, fungi, and other organisms." There are many different types and styles of composters but they all have one goal - the use or organic waste to generate natural, rich fertilizer. Let us help you decide if a kitchen composter, a worm bin, or a free standing composter is the right product for you.
Composting is the decomposition of plant remains and other once-living materials to make an earthy, dark, crumbly substance that is excellent for adding to houseplants or enriching garden soil. It is the way to recycle your yard and kitchen wastes, and is a critical step in reducing the volume of garbage needlessly sent to landfills for disposal. It's easy to learn how to compost.
