This is the first blog post of Geobunga’s series on easy composting at home. Part Two: 3 Brilliant Uses of Homemade Compost You Wish You Found Sooner, is about the top three ways to use compast to help your plants thrive and stay happy.
Next time you’re walking in nature, take note of all the dead leaves and other organic matter decomposing on the ground. That’s compost, and the plants love it! Why? Because compost:

- reduces erosion and levels of plant pathogens, insects and weeds
