The Science Behind Composting

Learn about the science of how composting works (the workforce/microbes) to produce benefits for the garden and how to get started with composting. Think about what’s in your garbage, learn where to put the compost pile, what can go in the compost pile and what cannot go in the pile, how to gather “greens” (nitrogen) and “browns”(carbon) for the pile, etc.
