Compost adds valuable nutrients and organic matter back into your soil, producing healthier and higher-yielding plants! Compost is a slow-release, all natural fertilizer great for lawns, gardens and potted plants.
Better Soil Structure
Good compost is a highly absorptive material. This is great for your soils as it both increases water capacity and decreases erosion! When you add compost to your garden, you are also adding millions of beneficial microbes, which will continue to break down organics into more nutrients for your soil.
From the EPA: "When food goes to the landfill, it’s similar to tying food in a plastic bag. The nutrients in the food never return to the soil. The wasted food rots and produces methane gas. Methane is a strong greenhouse gas with more than 21 times the global warming potential compared to carbon dioxide." Here at Joe's Organics, we think that your food is much better used to make compost, which in turn is used to grow more food!
