The Easy Way To Turn Food Waste Into Compost

Do you have coffee grounds and potato peels but no way to compost them? Fear not, the answer is closer than you think. Welcome to Composting 101.

Compost needs to be an essential element in your garden

Compost is the Number One thing you can do for your garden. It's also one of the easiest, and it doesn't require a lot of money or resources. Composting is just like making bread: you combine the right compost ingredients, follow a few composting methods and it turns into something beautiful.

The composting benefits are HUGE! It isn't just about turning food scraps into soil. It's about encouraging the earth to support life. If you're concerned about the environment, composting is a great way to start feeling better about yourself and the planet.

Why is composting good for the environment? By adding compost to your garden, you're helping to make sure that plants have exactly what they need to grow and thrive—and making sure that those plants are absorbing carbon from the atmosphere instead of releasing it into the air as CO2.

Also, backyard composting helps keep toxins out of landfills, where they can leach into groundwater or spread through rainwater runoff onto nearby fields. If you live in an apartment building or condo complex with limited space for gardening, consider using a compost bin or tumbler on your balcony, deck, or patio so that all those scraps don't go straight into trash bags!

Composting for beginners? You bet! It's easy to learn composting at home with just a few basic tools—and once you start composting, there will be no looking back!

Hi, my name is Marion Owen...

Thirty-five years ago, I was like you, a frustrated gardener!

Yes, I had a passion for gardening. But I had no idea what I was doing. Back then, there was no YouTube, no internet.

Sometimes I was lucky and my efforts were rewarded. Most of the time I was left feeling discouraged. Because of the mistakes I made, the hours I wasted, and the money I lost,  I nearly gave up.

As the years went by, I managed to develop a green thumb.

Now, three decades later, I write a weekly garden column.
I've been featured in Better Homes & Gardens, Reader's Digest and Organic Gardening.

I've even written a New York Times bestseller,
"Chicken Soup for the Gardener's Soul", which has inspired many gardeners around the globe.

Having felt the frustration that only beginners know, I decided that my legacy would be to help other like-minded gardeners fast-track their journey to gardening success!

I opened my home and invited local gardeners in for small training sessions.

As I helped more and more people, I started receiving requests from all over the world for help. With a full diary, I decided to take my teaching online.

My first course was "Joy of Composting", which I am proud to say has helped hundreds of people improve their gardens without resorting to harsh chemicals.

But I knew people needed more, which is why I am glad to announce that...
