Compost is generated by a biological process in which naturally occurring microorganisms and bacteria break down organic materials such as food scraps, animal manures, leaves, grass clippings, and wood chips. Composting is a way of speeding up Mother Nature’s decomposition process and a natural form of recycling. In addition, the process produces a valuable organic material that can enhance plant growth in lawns and homes.
