Back in the days when I was a little kid, my grandparents used to make their own compost in a big plastic barrel in their yard. Trash went in and months later soil came out. For me it was like magic. My grandad considered himself to be the wizard of ‘Black Gold’. Which I, of course, believed.
Years later, I found out my granddad was a good storyteller and that composting actually is Mother Nature’s magical way of recycling. It is a natural process in which microorganisms break down organic waste into a soil amendment that is packed with beneficial nutrients; from your garbage to a treat for your garden!
