Composting is just nature's way of recycling plant materials like leaves, grass, twigs, brush, and fruit and vegetable wastes. Through composting, these materials are converted into a form that can be used again to enrich the soil and nourish living plants. "Compost" is the finished soil product that is produced by proper composting.
Composting at home is quite easy to do. In fact, you're probably composting right now, without even realizing it.

But if you want to focus or accelerate the process, you can use a number of methods to make compost slowly or quickly.
