Composting is the process of decomposing organic matter (yard debre, table scraps) into fertilizer. Composting is a key part of organic farming. Compost provides a safe and organic fertilizer for your garden. It will increase the amount of nutrients, nitrogen, and oxygen in the soil. It is also a great way to recycle yard debre and kitchen waste. You can either spend time and money hauling yard waste to the dump, or you could use it as free organic fertilizer without to much effort.
