Composting Process

During the composting process, the raw materials that are used are compacted, dehydrated, and re-hydrated to create mulch that will enhance the fertilizer you are already using. Compost Heap

The materials for the compost are all natural, so you can use scraps of food that have not been eaten, fish heads, and debris from your yard or neighborhood in order to create a soil that is gentle on the environment and your food.

Organic Crops

Many people choose this method because it allows them to grow organic crops without having to pay the additional price for organic groceries in a supermarket.

The materials for compost are usually dried leaves and twigs, along with vegetable food wastes. These materials are placed in a container with sufficient ventilation and allowed to decompose in order to create lush, healthy soil that your vegetables and fruits will grow well in.

Worm Composting

You may also want to consider worm composting, which can make the soil richer in some cases. Then we need to know which kinds of worms are best to use, and what to feed the worms during the process. That depends greatly on the area you live in.

And when you are considering this advanced form of  compostting, the size of your composter becomes an issue. The size of the device will determine how much material you can store in the container at one time. Deciding whether or not you want a system that gives you compost in batches or not is also a consideration.

Some composters are continuously decomposing the waste you put inside of them, which means you'll always have soil for your plants and garden.

Anyone can participate in the composting process; all you'll need is a container (you can use an old garbage can or wooden crate) and the materials mentioned above.
