Composting is nothing more than guiding the natural process by which organic wastes decompose to sustain your garden. Composting is so worth the effort. Adding compost to your garden feeds the soil food web and provides a slow release of nutrients to your crops. Compost also vastly improves soil structure, allows the soil to hold in moisture better and improves the nutrients contents of your plants. This way composting may improve your health too. You should try to compost if you are not doing so already.
