It’s a way to turn dead leaves and plants and even certain kitchen scraps into rich “power dirt” instead of dumping it into your garbage. At home or working with your school find a spot to make a compost pile. Every few weeks add a little water to the pile and mix it all up. In a few months your “power dirt” will look like soil and act like a fertilizer for your lawn or garden.
When you mow your grass, you should keep grass clippings on the lawn, not in the trash. It’s good for the lawn! In some communities, some of the big stuff like large branches can be dropped at composting centers. Check it out!
