From the SOCRRA website, "Compost is a natural organic soil amendment and fertilizer made from a variety of yard waste and food scraps. Compost improves soil structure, retains water, encourages root growth, aerates soil, releases nutrients slowly, supports beneficial organisms and earthworms, and suppresses some soil-borne diseases. Compost also helps protect water quality because it absorbs rainwater and filters out many pollutants. It is useful as a soil amendment throughout the landscape – including lawns, trees, shrubs, vegetable gardens and flower beds."
