Composting At Home Is Easier Than You Think

You can do it!

Composting at home is far more straightforward than one might assume, says Summer Rayne Oakes of Foodstand.

With just a bin, some dirt and food waste, you can compost at home and make your own nutrient-rich soil. “It’s really wonderful that we can actually take our food waste and put it back into the earth,” Oakes said.

Compostable food waste includes fruit and vegetable scraps, grass clippings, dry leaves, paper and dead plants. Just be sure to avoid using meat, fish and dairy in your compost.
