Compost is organic material that can be used as a soil amendment or as a medium to grow plants. Mature compost is a stable material with a content called humus that is dark brown or black and has a soil-like, earthy smell.
Natural composting or biological decomposition began with the first plants on earth and has been going on ever since. As vegetation falls to the ground, slowly decays, providing minerals and nutrients needed for plants, animals, and microorganisms .
First select a spot to set up your bin. It should be out of the way but convenient to reach with plenty of room to work around. Some good places would be near your garden or in a back corner of the yard. It is also a good idea to choose a location close to a source of water.
micro-organisms that recycle leaves and other plant parts with a mix of brown stuff and green stuff. They also need air and water to live and work. Put all this together and in time you will have compost!
