Compost Saga 1: What is compost?


Compost is a recycling procedure of organic wastes. From organic wastes we can produce humus or compost for the garden and your flower pots on your balcony. With this technique, one can reduce significantly its wastes and participate actively to the green effort.

The procedure corresponds to the transformation of organic wastes through decomposition by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. These organisms need only water, oxygen and organic material.

Without garden, composting still makes sense, because you will always have a pot of flowers nearby or somewhere in your neighborhood to throw the homemade humus. The choice of your bin then depends on what needs to be covered, ie whether you live in an apartment (anaerobic fermentation) or if you have a garden (aerobic fermentation).
