Welcome to Composting 101
Compost is just decomposed organic materials. While composting may seem complicated, it’s actually really simple and easy to do. Composting involves a combination of digested and undigested food that is left on the forest (or your garden) floor. The end product is a rich, soft soil. It’s amazing how a natural process can transform everyday waste into a gardener’s fortune. Not only is composting good for the garden, it’s our environmental responsibility to breakdown organic waste rather than ditching it in landfills.
A Gardener’s Gold
Compost is a priceless asset for our gardens. It improves the quality of the soil by changing its structure. By making the soil the right consistency, it maximizes its ability to hold the right amount of moisture and air. This in turn supports the growth of healthier and more productive plants. Compost also has the ability to transform nutrient deficient clay soil into rich, moisture holding, loamy soil. Compost provides all of the essential nutrients for healthy plant growth, and it almost always slowly releases those nutrients to the plants so that there is a consistent intake of essential nutrients.
