Beginning Home Composting

Discover the basics of backyard composting and composting with worms. Compost is that dark crumbly material—the result of decomposed organic materials—that improves the structure and texture of the soil enabling it to better retain nutrients, moisture, and air around plant roots.  You can buy it in bags, but it’s easy and cheaper to make your own. Learn how to turn yard waste and kitchen scraps into wonderfully rich, free compost—black gold for your garden.
