Composting is the natural process of recycling organic material into a humus-rich soil amendment known as compost. Food waste, grass clippings, garden debris and even shredded paper can be easily decomposed into high quality compost. Stop throwing away organic waste as trash. Smithsonian Gardens’ Horticulturist Sarah Tietbohl will show how compost can enrich our environment, not damage it.
