Compost is decomposing plant and food waste that is recycled into a mixture used to fertilize and improve the soil. We have a composting bin in our community garden that we utilize! In the formation of the subsoil for this garden, a large amount of carbon, wood chips, slow-release nutrients(such as oyster shells), and compost were used.
