Organic compost is essential in organic gardening. Adding good quality organic compost, or spraying compost tea, adds beneficial soil microbes and nutrients to organic soil, adds organic matter, and increases water retention. Garden sustainably and save money by making your own compost at home with simple & essential tools including a compost bin, compost thermometer, and compost aerator.
Worm composting, also called vermiculture or worm farming, returns rich worm castings from kitchen scraps — use it as you would compost.
