Composting has benefits that run very deep, both in your garden and for the environment as a whole. By composting you keep tonnes of food scraps and yard trimmings out of the landfill and create nutrient rich soil that can be used to feed and grow your plants and vegetables.
The soil created from compost is of top quality and will save you money when you don’t need to go to the store as often to pick bagged soil to add to your gardens.
As long as plants have grown, composting has occured. Composting is a natural occurence as organisms decompose, so composting doesn’t have to be complicated. Avid gardeners may prefer to take a more scientific approach to composting and there are methods that can be used to speed up the process and achieve more nutrient rich soil, but for others simple is best.
