Have you ever wanted to learn how to compost food scraps into rich soil but get discouraged by the amount of work involved or the costly supplies sold in home and garden stores and online?
Well, good news! Simple household composting doesn't require any more work than it does dumping your plate into the trash and taking the trash out to the street.
And you can create a backyard composting bin or compost pile without spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on crates, barrels, tumblers and other equipment. Building a compost pile is completely free and you can create a compost bin for as little as a dollar.
If you've never thought of composting before, give it a try. Not only will you be creating rich soil to use in your garden or for houseplants, you'll be helping to reduce waste by composting leftover food scraps rather than throwing them out in the trash.
Composting is also a good way to involve kids in gardening and waste reduction plus is a great science lesson on decomposition.
