Start Composting Today!

If you love gardening, I’m sure you’ve heard of the term compost. Compost is defined as “decayed organic material used as a plant fertilizer,” and it’s a wonderful way to get your garden producing the best results you’ve seen yet. Not to mention it will save you money and is great for the environment. According to MakeDirtNotWaste.Org, using compost reduces greenhouse gas emissions in the following ways:

  • The greenhouse gas emissions related to fertilizer
    production are avoided.
  • There is significant reduction in the use of pesticides
    (avoiding emissions associated with their production).
  • Improves health and workability of soils, resulting in
    less fuel consumption to till the soil.
  • Helps soils hold or sequester carbon dioxide.

I found the infograph below on The Enduring Gardener blog, where you can find TONS of great information on composting, gardening and more. Learn how to start composting today!
