What is compost?
Compost is an organic mulch and soil amendment material that is made from recycled yard and garden prunings, food scraps and other compostable materials. Compost improves the soil by adding organic matter, microbes, nutrients, and trace minerals. Adding compost to a garden can improve plant health, reduce pests, decrease runoff, improve water retention, prevent erosion, and keep waste out of landfills.
