About National Learn About Composting Day
This is a day to raise awareness of how we can make our planet a little bit better with materials that are naturally available. Composting helps repurpose organic waste materials at the same time that it provides economic and ecological benefits when used to help grow plants, whether in gardens, for landscaping, or for farming.
Compost is organic matter that has decomposed. Composting has incredible benefits, from adding nutrient-rich soil to your garden to reducing food and yard waste from entering the landfill. Many of us have heard about the benefits of composting but may be overwhelmed with the process of getting started.
National Learn About Composting Day is all about educating yourself about this process, whether you’re hoping to start composting a few kitchen scraps or build your very own composting bin.
