As living things grow and die, they leave behind organic matter that contains supportive elements. These are broken down chemically by soil-dwelling microorganisms (bacteria, actinomycetes, protozoa, and fungi) and physically by insects, spiders, snails, slugs, and worms. From start to finish, the process is a harmonious cycle, constantly generating the potential for new, healthy plant and animal life by freeing supportive elements that have been “trapped” in organic compounds.

Traditional farming and gardening, and now what is considered “organic” growing, are based on maintaining a healthy balance of the micro- and macro-organisms in the growing area. Fundamental to this is ensuring that there is the correct availability of water and supportive elements for the plants and beneficial living organisms. Compost helps to provide this by:
