Backyard Composting 101: At the Library!

It’s not officially Spring yet, but some thoughts are turning to warmer weather, budding trees…and compost. Composting is a way to introduce nourishment to the soil without having to resort to purchased chemicals and fertilizers. Most people can create their own healthy compost for the garden, thereby feeding garden plants and flowers, while at the same time responsibly recycling kitchen and yard waste in Virginia Beach, VA. In the same way that the right food helps keep your family’s smiles healthy, so good quality compost benefits your yard.
