Gaga with garbage

One of our favorite topics: composting!  They’re doing it in India to start gardens and we can do it here too!  Want to learn how to compost?  We have several articles to help you learn about the process.  My favorite part about composting?  Knowing that all of the food scraps (and there are many) go into my compost bin and not the trash bin.  Did you know that 20% of the waste in our landfills are food?  Scientists have actually found lettuce heads that are 20 years old!  Without oxygen, food doesn’t break down.  But in a composter, your food waste will turn into amazing compost in 8 weeks!
