Composting: An Overview

Composting is the process of breaking down organic matter into a nutrient-rich soil amendment. It is an environmentally friendly way to dispose of food scraps and yard waste, and it can be done on a small or large scale. Proper composting requires a balance of carbon-rich (brown) and nitrogen-rich (green) materials, as well as oxygen and moisture. The end result is a dark, crumbly substance that can be used to enrich soil and support plant growth.
