In this introduction to composting, you will learn what tools you need, where to locate your pile, how compost is made, how to use it, and how to troubleshoot. Making compost is fun and very rewarding. California recently passed a law requiring all food scraps, yard waste, and soiled paper products be diverted from the landfill. That means putting them into a green bin or into your compost pile.
