Composting for Beginners
Composting can be a lot of fun and beneficial not only for your garden, but for the environment as well (if done correctly by exposing your compost to oxygen). According to a 2018 report from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, food waste accounted for 24% of trash sent to landfills. Composting is not a difficult process once you know the basics, but it does take time and patience while you wait for the breakdown of organic material to magically turn into fertile soil.
