Composting & Soils

July 14 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

Composting is a unique method of recycling. It uses existing microorganisms to decompose organic matter into usable and highly nutritious soil. It can be done in your backyard, under your sink or even in commercial settings. All you need is to know the composting recipe for success, an open mind, and the desire to help the environment.
