Compost, Compost Everywhere: How It's Made (Seattl

Season 6, Episode 22 of 26

Healthy plants start with healthy soil, and healthy soil starts with compost. In this episode, we see how one commercial facility diverts yard waste and kitchen scraps that might otherwise be destined for a landfill and converts it into compost, veritable black gold for the garden. We also visit Seattle Tilth, a training facility that teaches homeowners how to compost on a much smaller scale to give their own gardens the best chance for success.
