  • Keys to successful composting in your household

     Nature uses the process of decomposition to return nutrients to the soil for reuse. Composting harnesses the natural process, producing a product that you can add to your garden for soil improvement. You can compost a variety of organic material, including leaves, grass clippings, straw, fruit and vegetable scraps, and even manure.

    Composting optimizes conditions for the growth of bacterial and fungal microbes — the organisms responsible for decomposition.
