What is Compost?

Compost is the product manufactured through the controlled aerobic, biological decomposition of biodegradable materials. It has undergone mesophilic and thermophilic temperatures, which significantly reduces the viability of pathogens and weed seeds, and stabilizes the carbon, such that it is beneficial to plant growth.
