Composting: The decomposition of once-living & plant remains. When decomposed the matter turns into an earthy & dark substance that is wonderful for enriching garden soil and houseplants. It is a wonderful way of recycling kitchen waste and keeping that waste out of landfills.
Composting can be done in many ways, some opt for a compost pile in their backyards, compost bins or an automatic composting like I have.
Composting has been done for centuries as a way to turn waste into useful material.
