Composting appeals to the thrifty person in all of us. It feels to recycle food scraps and plant trimmings back into the soil rather than have them hauled away. And composting results in a very valuable product. The best soil amendment—your own homemade compost—is one that money can’t buy.
Before getting started it is important to consider what you will be composting—backyard composting works for yard trimmings and food mixed with yard trimmings, and worm composting works for food scraps only. We also provide plans for building your own compost bin, and information about where to buy bins.
