Did you know that composting is a great thing to do for the planet as it can divert 25% of material from the landfill?

Composting is combining fruit and vegetable waste, dead leaves, grass clippings, shredded newspapers, and more by keeping it moist and turning the soil every fews days. The result will be high quality nutrient rich soil to use in your yard or garden.  

If you are interested in composting search "composting" on Google and you will find many videos and articles that will give you all the information you need to get started. There are many more materials that are compostable beyond your basics. The point is that composting is easy.  Anyone can do it!
