Composting has a number of benefits, both for the environment and for gardening. For example, composting can help to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, where it can produce methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Composting also helps to recycle nutrients back into the soil, which can improve the fertility and health of the soil and support the growth of plants.

There are many different ways to compost, and the specific method that you choose will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Some people may choose to compost in their backyard using a compost bin or pile, while others may use a composting service that collects food waste and other organic materials for composting.

Overall, composting is a natural and effective way to reduce waste and improve the health of the soil in your garden. It is an important part of sustainable gardening, and can help to support a healthy and diverse ecosystem.

There are also other methods of food waste management around, like Bokashi or Biogas
