Learn to compost
Do you compost? It diverts kitchen and yard waste from landfill, reduces methane gas in the atmosphere, introduces beneficial microbes to your soil, and offers an economical and eco-friendly way to feed the plants in your garden. Pretty great. Using your city’s green bin program is a great way to get into composting because it’s super easy to get started and integrate into your life.
Once your comfortable with what can be composted and you’ve got a good system for separating your food scraps, you can level up to home composting. If you live in an apartment with no outdoor space, a good option is worm composting. The worms do all the aerating for you and it’s easier to maintain. If you have a backyard, you can try creating a compost pile in your backyard. It’s really just putting your yard waste together with your food scraps and giving it a turnover every couple of weeks. Easy peasy.
