Compost is a simple way to add nutrients to your garden—and a simple way to reduce your home’s waste. Instead of sending yard trimmings and food waste to the landfill, where they’ll create methane gas as they rot, add these items to your home’s compost pile! You’ll reduce greenhouse gas emissions, eliminate the energy needed to haul waste to the dump, and you’ll get a nutritious soil amendment to boot. What are you waiting for? Making compost is easy! Discover tips and instructions for composting at home, and learn how to make your own bin with DIY compost bin plans.
