What is Composting?
Composting is the recycling of decomposed, organic material by positioning these materials into or onto the soil. Anything that was once a living thing is compostable. In addition, it is an all-natural, alternative fertilizer and is a great way to recycle unwanted organic material. Composting follows a natural cycle, much like the water cycle, and can proceed without human assistance, unlike commercial fertilize. In turn, compost returns nutrients back into the soil and allows plants to grow with natural minerals which is not at all costly.
Another way of composting is by applying compost piles or compost trenches onto or into the ground/soil. Although it sounds easier than using a bin, compost piling and compost trenches require more labor.
