What is Composting?

Composting is the managed decomposition of organic materials returned to humus form in a controlled aerobic process.

What is Compost?

To put it in the simplest terms, compost is a soil amendment. It’s structure is very similar to soil, being a dark, crumbly, and earthy smelling dirt like material. But it ain’t dirt. Good compost is high in organic matter content, teeming with microbes that are ready to serve the earth. Compost is biologically active and loaded with micro and macro nutrients.

Why Compost?

  • Composting reduces waste, makes us less dependent on landfills, and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Compost strengthens soil and promotes healthy plant growth.
  • Compost closes the food waste loop and keeps the value of recycling food and it’s resources in the community.
  • Compost reduces the need for synthetic chemical fertilizers.
  • Compost benefits decentralization and a circular economy instead of our current take, make, and waste linear economy.
