Composting is a way to recycle organic matter, i.e. leaves, vegetable and fruit scraps, etc., into a rich soil. It has many benefits not only for the garden itself but for the environment as well. Below are links explaining how to make a compost pile, what they are, what the benefits of having one are, and even a Florida gardening calendar to help you keep your garden fresh year-round!
