Composting is copying a natural process that recycles organic material - like food and yard waste - into a nutrient-rich additive for soil. Composting can improve your lawn and garden, and reduce the waste you put at the curb by a third.

Composting at Home Program

The Composting at Home Program ran for nine seasons and trained more than 1,800 people how to compost.

While this program is no longer available, there are lots of resources to get you started in the "How to Videos and Resources" section.

Tools to get started

Composting tools can be found at your local home building supply store or garden centre. A compost aerating tool like the Wing-Digger retails for around $20, composters for anywhere from $45 to $100+, and the kitchen catcher for around $20.
