Benefits to Composting at Home
  • Save money – by reducing the need for chemical fertilizers
  • Yield healthier plants – naturally adding vital nutrients to soil that supports stimulating growth, building resistance and tolerance to disease and drought-like conditions
  • Improve consistency of soil - creating a more absorbent soil, making it easier to cultivate
  • Improve soil chemistry - soften alkaline or acidic soil, increase micronutrient availability
  • Save water – increase moisture retention in soil up to 60%, so you don’t need to water as often.
  • Reduce the Waste Stream - by diverting yard and food waste headed for the landfill
