Learn how to manage home-scale organic waste and turn it into a stable soil amendment. Plants grown in sandy soils, clay soils and anything in between benefit from the nutrient- and water-holding capacity of compost amended soils. The secret to a sustainable backyard composting operation is finding one that fits your lifestyle and needs.
