What is Composting?

Compost is the term used to describe decomposed organic material. Composting gives gardeners, farmers and homeowners an environmentally-friendly way to add nutrients back to the soil while also reducing the amount of waste generated—whether that be kitchen scraps, animal manure or yard clippings.   Composting speeds up the natural process of plant material turning into organic matter. The compost pile heats up, and the soil organisms present get to work breaking everything down into a fine medium with the texture, consistency, color and smell of a very healthy soil. When done properly, a compost can go from start to finish in as little as three months.   CLICK HERE FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
