today is National Learn About Composting Day

One of the easiest things to do to make yourself more resillient is to make your own compost.

Kitchen scraps and lawn clippings, leaves and wood chips, manure and can be as simple as a pile in a corner of the yard, or as elaborate as a compost tumbler, but the basic principle is the same: once nutrients enter your property, it's better to capture them than to send them off in your waste stream.
