Good soil is essential to growing healthy gardens. Compost is an organic matter source that has the unique ability to improve the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of soils or growing media. It contains plant nutrients but is typically not characterized as a fertilizer. This website hosted by NC Division of Environmental Assistance and Outreach (under NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources) provides information on composting 101, commercial composting, vermi(worm)composting, compost tea, grants and more!
