Composting is how nature's decomposition creates a rich soil amendment from our kitchen, home and yard waste materials. The process is incredibly simple: gather safe waste from your home, kitchen, or yard into a bin, pile, or pit; stir; and let nature do the rest. Master Gardener Catherine Scott will explain how to turn organic kitchen and yard waste into a nourishing soil enrichment that improves soil structure, attracts beneficial organisms, and provides the nutrients a plant needs to thrive without chemical additives.
