Kitchen and garden scraps
What You Do:
1. Save your fruit and vegetable scraps, newspapers, grass clippings, and other compostable materials, and use them to start a compost bin or pile. You need either a box of worms or a place where you can pile up the material to compost.
2. Add a bit of water from time to time, and turn your pile to speed up the composting process.
3. When everything has broken down into a dark, rich soil, spread it in your garden, and enjoy the results.
Why This Works:
Compost is loaded with nutrients and microorganisms that are good for your garden. Apply here
