What is compost?

Compost refers to the organic material that is typically disposed of after food preparation. For example, peels from produce, produce core, garden waste, and shells. Saving these organic materials, and putting them back into the ground creates nutrient-rich soil, reduces organic waste in landfills, can assist with ground recovery from drought, and prevents soil erosion--just to name a few! By having compost to use at the AgriPark for future crops, you're helping grow a community garden that will be more sustainable, while also helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
