  1. What is compost?

Compost is decomposed organic material such as yard waste and kitchen scraps. In nature, the decomposition of organic material is accomplished by microorganisms (bacteria, molds, fungi), earthworms, and insects. Composting provides the ideal conditions that speed up natural processes. Compost can be used as a soil amendment to improve soil texture and nutrient content, or as a substitute for chemical fertilizers
