Learn about compost and how it can benefit our soil health and how you can become keen at composting. Use recycled kitchen scraps and garden debris to make humus, a nutrient-rich organic matter you can use to amend poor soils or fertilize gardens. Compost can be used in addition to your normal fertilizing methods or as a substitute. You will learn about the benefits of composting, different methods of composting, how to get started, and how to reap the most benefits from your compost pile. You’ll also learn which items can and cannot be safely composted.
