Composting is the process of decomposing organic matter including food leftovers into nutrient-rich compost, making for wonderful soil. This soil can be used to grow healthy plants that don't need chemical fertilizers to grow, which is helpful for protecting our environment. It doesn't take much to start composting at your own house, and in honor of Earth Month, Alissa is going to show you how it's done!
