Composting organic waste is one of the best things you can do for the environment.
What is compost, anyway?
Nicknamed “Black Gold” by many gardeners and farmers, compost is a soil-like substance made from decomposed organic materials, such as yard trimmings and food scraps. When used properly, beneficial microorganisms in your compost pile will break down the waste until it becomes an unrecognizable substance that is dark, fluffy and rich in nutrients.

Hi! How is your day going? Did you already take a walk? Did you take the time to go out and contemplate nature?

By just taking a 30 mins walk I can admire nature (the river, the trees, the hills around us plus how slowly the day gets brighter) and can also watch people walking their dogs or jogging, is kind a being part of the same world, as silly as it may sound. Hope you find the time to go outside and just observe what is beyond the window of the office or home.
Have a great day!
