Using organic compost materials is an effective way to protect the environment you are caring for and residing in. These practices promote longevity and liveliness in your gardening endeavors by providing water and nutrients for the existing plants to thrive on. When compost is used in a garden, plant vitality is increased.  By protecting and providing nutrients for your plants from the moment they set seed, mortality rates drop significantly and plants live longer lives. The result of healthier, longer lasting plants is less spending on new plants, as well as saving time and labor that would otherwise be used on re-planting.

Composting offers a myriad of benefits for the ecosystem. Depositing organic matter into the local soil helps to control erosion and promotes cleaner water supplies. There are several ways in which composting positively impacts stormwater management. Organic matter filters stormwater as it runs through the soil, subsequently binding the soils together. By increasing the permeability of the soil, stormwater can freely filtrate through the ground rather than runoff over the surface. Once in the ground, the water is able to slowly flow through the sandy-soils, giving the water a safe, natural holding place. This act of natural water filtration and storage is very beneficial for the soil, the water supply and local ecosystems.

These practices make a huge impact and only require a few simple steps to get started!
