There was a lesson in gardening that I learned later in life, friends. That lesson has to do with compost, and the essential role it plays on our urban homestead.

That finished compost is a valuable addition to the soil quality. Let’s talk about the essentials of composting, and how to get the compost cookin’ on your urban farm, in your backyard garden, or for your beautiful flower bed.
