Got a Way with Worms?
Compost is great for gardens and landscaping. At home composting reduces the cost of yard trimmings collection and processing, keeps kitchen wastes out of the landfill while turning organic material into valuable product for gardens and house plants.
Composting is nature's way of recycling. Its a satisfying way to turn fruit, vegetable and yard trimmings into a dark, crumbly, sweet smelling soil conditioner. Composting is easy, it's smart, it's recycling.
