Composting creates rich soil and stronger plants, reduces erosion and the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, uses free and available resources, increases the life of our landfill, cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions and reduces global warming—and it’s easy to do. Those who would like to compost, but don’t have a garden, can compost junk mail and food scraps to worms. Red wiggler composting worms quietly and efficiently make the richest compost possible.
