Composting Benefits

WHAT IS COMPOSTING?

In short, composting is the acceleration of the natural process of the decomposition of organic matter. This is done by creating an ideal environment for decomposing organisms such as worms, sowbugs, and nematodes, as well as bacteria and fungi, to do their work more quickly and efficiently. The result of this process is compost. The end product resembles fertile gardening soil, aka “black gold” in the farming, horticulture and agriculture worlds.
